Admire Tampa Firefighters Museum

Tampa may not have as many charming galleries as London, but it does have several free-to-enter exhibition halls. One of these is the Tampa Firefighters Museum

Built in 1911, the museum has been notably restored and served as the headquarters for the Fire Department until 1974. Visiting this museum is an ideal way to learn about the fire department's history and fire safety & prevention in the city. You can also admire an old fire wagon that still looks almost brand new.

Soaking Some Sun In at Ben T. Davis Beach

If you're looking for the perfect beach day in Tampa, Ben T. Davis Beach is the spot for you! 

It's close to downtown and the airport, so it's great for travelers who value time and efficiency. It has soothing powdery white sand, perfect for lounging and cooling off in the calm water. There are also shelters for family picnics, and Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings are great times to go and play beach volleyball with the local crowd. In addition, this is Tampa’s best place in town to catch the sunset, and it's right next to the new Courtney Campbell Causeway for biking and walking. 

Take a Tour to Yuengling Brewery

When here in Tampa, visit the Yuengling Brewery in Uptown Tampa to cherish a unique experience. It's one of only two locations of Yuengling Brewery in the US. The brewery was first established in Pottsville, Pennsylvania in 1829, making it the oldest brewery in the country! 

You can take a free tour here from Wednesday to Saturday. Tours last about an hour, and afterward, you can grab a sample beer at the beer garden or buy a souvenir from the gift shop.
