My Favorite Thing to Do in Downtown
Ride the historic Streetcar! I enjoy taking the Streetcar during lunch on weekdays to see all of the new and exciting developments happening around Downtown. I hop off to visit the Florida Aquarium, Tampa Bay Sports at Amalie Arena or for a quick lunch at Hattricks’s Tavern. On Saturdays, I love taking the Streetcar from Downtown over to Ybor City to watch Florida State football games at Gaspar’s and afterwards riding it back Downtown to the Sail to watch the Sunset.
