May weather and general swimming/location

by mayfast

Hello All,

My hubs and I are coming down to your wonderful part of the world from UK in early May for 2 weeks - will it be hot enough to swim in the ocean/pools at this time of the year?

Any tip on best beach for swimming in the ocean and vacation rental 'on the beach front' - just miss the sun and beaches here in Europe. Any advice appreciated.

Thanks and all the best for 2009!

Indian Rocks and Madeira Beaches are very nice and right on the Gulf, so the water gets quite warm. There are condos and houses for vacation rentals as well as hotels. It is a bit outside the city of Tampa so you may want to rent a car there. But there are a lot of restaurants and it's not so far that you can't head into the city to see the sights.

Totally agree with the Indian Rocks suggestion - been there several times in May - I think May is one of the best times to visit Florida.

Just under 2 hours from Orlando and 40 minutes from Tampa - wonderful place

The water down here in Florida really doesnt heat up until mid June. However it if you can stand the water at about 75 degrees then you should be fine. Most Floridians still find this water temp to be to cold but if your from Europe then it should be ok for you. When you book your hotel just make sure they have a heated pool. The nights in May can still get chilly. If you want the best beaches then you will have to visit a few of my favorites. The Caladesi Island beach and the Fort De Soto beaches are some of the most beautiful beaches we have to offer here in Florida. Just do a google search for these and you will get all the info you need. Both of these beaches were voted in the top 10 beaches in the U.S If you want to see some really nice azul color water then head south to siesta key. Its a bit of drive from St Pete but well worth the trip. Its about an hour south. Hope this helps.

If you have not already got yourselves sorted with your accommodation try a little further south. Sarasota with its sofisticated shops and fine white sand beaches or Historic Venice with quaint Olde Worlde town centre shops and beautiful beaches renowned for searching for shark's teeth when you have had enough sun bathing!! I can give you some names of accommodation if you need any.

Travel Tips for Tampa

Great FREE beaches

by FloridaBear

Fort Desoto Park,
Really more in the St. Pete area, but only about a 30 minute drive from downtown Tampa. This is the absolute jewel of all the beaches along Flroidas west coast. The best part, it's FREE! First time I vacationed here about 30 years ago from New Jersey. The difference, ecpecialy during the winter months is fantastic. Warm winds, great sunsets, good food and fishing. A great place for adults as well as children. Free piers, swimming areas, playgrounds, camping area, so many barbeque areas you can always find one. Skateing paths, mangroves. Just a great place to spend a full day.

cuban influence

by arasnosliw

Ybor City was once the leading producer of cigars in this country. With the growth of production came immigrant workers mainly from Cuba, Italy, Germany and Spain. Today, Tampa Bay has retained a lot of that Cuban flavor that these immigrants brought to the area, specifically visible in cigars, food, festivals, music, and dance. For a country that does not have the greatest relationship with Cuba, it's great to see how much influence Cuba has had here and the love people show for its culture.

Walking on Fire Clinic

by tampa_shawn

The Tampa/St Petersburg area is a great way to stretch yourself by walking on fire.
Yes, you heard me right…by walking on fire.

The clinic listed below is an amazing experience where you not only walk on fire, you bend rebar, break boards and even walk on glass. It’s a truly amazing experience that stretches your boundaries and empowers all who do it.

Fire walking classes are not offered on a regular basis and groups are required for this exercise. So you’ll either need to get a group together OR check out one of the large clinics open to the public. See the website below for more information.

I've done this twice now and plan on going again in the next year

They're are more pictures on this page and on my Tampa webpage (along with some how to instructions).


Big Cat Rescue

by Ewingjr98

Big Cat Rescue is one of the truly unique places to visit in the Tampa area. While Busch Gardens makes aspects of Africa into a cheesy trap, Big Cat Rescue actually saves many wild cats from Africa and other locations. Big Cat Rescue has 45 acres, with 140 cats representing 16 species including Lions, Tigers, Geoffroy Cats, Jungle Cats, Servals, Caracals, Snow Leopards, Bobcats, Lynx and more.

Big Cat Rescue is not a zoo, but they do give guided tours with prices starting at $25 for adults and $15 for kids.

Sunday night drum circle

by tampa_shawn

Treasure Island Drum Circle is an absolutely wonderful way to watch the sunset and participate in some local culture.

It happens every Sunday – starting approximately an hour before sunset till 10 PM

The event is free and open to everyone….make music, dance, or just listen.
Drums, Tibetan Chimes & Singing Bowls, Quartz Crystal Singing Bowls, Shakers, Rattles, --- All Sacred Instruments of the Earth are Welcome! Modern drum sets played with sticks don't fit in very well
. . .
BRING your hand drums, any percussion instruments, violin, tuba….Blankets & chairs

Do NOT bring candles, incense, glass bottles or other flammables

In case of rain the circle will relocate to the pavillion at the park on 104th ave across from Fun Center(about a block east of the regular location)

From downtown St. Pete, go west on Central Avenue(over fifty cent toll bridge), then, when it dead ends into Gulf Blvd. turn left. Go a couple blocks south of Central Avenue on Gulf Blvd. to 104th Ave. (Public beach parking lot on beach side across from Treasure Island Fun Center,)

In case of rain the circle will relocate to the pavillion at the park on 104th ave across from Fun Center(about a block east of the regular location)
