Although Miami and Orlando are more well known and draw the lion's share of Florida tourism, Tampa and the surrounding area has begun to garner its fair share of tourists. Over the past few decades, the region has grown and developed into a wonderful destination with excellent beaches and world-class hotels.

Today the region offers a wonderful array of outdoor activities, thanks to its beautiful natural setting. The area has rolling, pine covered northern plains as well as white sand beaches and barrier islands. Camping, fishing, swimming, boating, sunning, and snorkeling are always available in this sunny and well-kept area of Florida. The Gulf Coast offers just as many white sand beaches and beautiful sunsets as the Atlantic side of Florida, if not more so. The crystal clear springs further inland have drawn visitors for a long time. Finally, the resort towns to the south, including Sarasota, are always full of visitors during the winter as everyone tries to escape the cold.
