Keep your weekend in high gear and prepare your soul for the onslaught of a new week with a Sunday Funday. The key Funday ingredients include sunshine, adult beverages, delicious food, shenanigans, and fun activities. 

We've got all that and much, much more here in Tampa, so gather your pals, and check out these awesome Sunday Funday ideas in Tampa for you and your crew!

Sip and Munch at One of Tampa's Best Brunch Spots

It's pretty much a non-negotiable activity for a true Sunday Funday. Kickstart your day with a powerful Bloody Mary or a sweet, angelic mimosa at some of Tampa's most chill eateries and enjoy good times along with decadent brunch menus.

Gaspar's Grotto offers a totally kick-ass Booze Cruize Brunch featuring bottomless mimosas, an insane Bloody Mary bar, and a seafood spread that will make you faint from happiness. Go ahead and grab reservations for the later seating!

You can also head over to Ella's Americana Folk Art Cafe early and check out their Soul Food Sunday and stuff your face with their stupefying chicken and waffles while quaffing a Funday classic, the Irish Breakfast Shot. 

Enjoy the Outdoors

After a delicious breakfast and refreshing brunch cocktail, you should get out and get some exercise. Tampa's Downtown and Channelside districts boast gorgeous waterfront views, plenty of walkable paths, and some top-notch people watching.

If you're feeling adventurous (and lucky), hop on one of those weird little electric scooters and ride along the river to Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park and pop into Four Green Fields for a Guinness or a snack.

Option #2: delve into Tampa's weird side with a stop at The Hub Bar, one of Tampa's oldest bars, then scoot or ride a Coast Bike Share whip to the new Sparkman Wharf. It's an awesome place to chill out, enjoy the Fermented Reality Biergarten, and dig on some live music with friends, providing everything you need for a perfect Sunday Funday in Tampa!

From Channelside, you can grab a super-fun TECO Line Trolley into Ybor City, where there's a plethora of bars, restaurants, shops, and other distractions. 

Hit the Water!

Grab a ride on the Pirate Water Taxi from any one of 15 stops, including Channelside, Curtis Hixon, and the Julian B. Lane Riverfront Park and enjoy the unique Hillsborough River up-close-and-personal. Disembark at Water Works Park and have a splash or walk over to Ulele or Armature Works for a sophisticated nibble or classy, refreshing cocktail.

Catch the next water taxi for a jaunt to Tampa's famous Rick's on the River, a one-of-a-kind riverfront bar and grill with oysters, legendary smoked fish spread, and pretty much the best piña coladas in Tampa!

Looking for more fun in the sun for your Sunday Funday? Don't miss WTR Pool and Grill on the Courtney Campbell Causeway for a refreshing swim and spectacular views or Hula Bay off Gandy Boulevard for an ice cold craft beer, conch fritters, and more fresh seafood than you can shake a stick at.
