Downtown Disney recently changed their name to Disney Springs with a whole bunch of renovations and we wanted to see all the fun new shops and restaurants they added.
Cask Social Kitchen opened in June 2015 and has quickly became one of our favorite restaurants in Tampa. Located in Hyde Park, it’s one of the restaurants in the area not to be missed.
We've been searching for a local coffee shop in Tampa that has it all - good coffee (obviously), friendly service, plenty of seating and free wifi - and we finally found it: Ginger Beard Coffee!
Oxford Exchange has been around in Tampa for awhile, but we only recently visited for brunch. I don't know why it took us so long to visit this place because it is gorgeous!!
I haven’t been to the Tampa Museum of Art in awhile and since I had free admission by staying at the Le Meridien Tampa hotel, I made sure to take advantage of a visit. Tampa Museum of Art is a beautiful museum located in the heart of downtown Tampa. The award-winning building was built in 2010 by architect Stanley Saitowitz and has become an icon at Curtis Hixon Park.
I've been taking notice of Le Meridien and Bizou's beautiful Instagram feed and had to check this place out for myself. The Le Meriden Tampa hotel and it’s restaurant, Bizou, is located in downtown Tampa and the building used to be the city's formal federal courthouse. I passed by this building numerous times before and had no idea it was a hotel until I started researching the place! I was even more intrigued and wanted to stay here for the night to get the full experience of this unique hotel.
I've become a brunch junkie lately and trying out all the hip restaurants around Tampa on the weekends. I usually like to check out places that have a cool vibe or something unique and O Cocina & Flights definitely fits that category.
Ybor City used to be a thriving cigar industry composed of Cuban and Spanish immigrants and was founded in 1885 by a group of cigar manufacturers led by Vicente Martinez-Ybor. The Cuban culture still remains in Ybor and it's also filled with vintage stores, restaurants, coffee shops, bars and breweries.
On the coast of St. Petersburg, Florida is the beautiful Vinoy Park with tall banyan trees, lively outdoor cafes, iconic museums and the historic Vinoy hotel overlooking Tampa Bay. We spent the day strolling around this gorgeous area.
