    Bring an Umbrella

    by Kushelkitten Written Jun 20, 2005

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: An umbrella is a necessary part of life in Florida especially during rainy season. In the summer months you can pretty much set your watch by the afternoon "thunderbumpers". However if you have to go out in a heavy downpour even an umbrella won't help you too much but as the rain begins to let up it will come in handy.

    Some General Tips

    by tafurojo Written Jan 31, 2004

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Light colors, shorts, t-shirts during the summer months. During the winter months you can get away with t-shirts during the day for the most part but at night you may want a sweater or long sleeve t-shirt. The temp in the winter is very inconsistant so be ready to change what you plan on wearing from day to day.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: There are several good camping sites in Tampa. Make sure you have plenty of bug repelant during the summer months (wet season) because the mosquitos can become relentless.

    Miscellaneous: If you are going to be outdoors for a long period of time during the summer or even some days during the winter you want to make sure you have plenty of sunscreen. Its not just for the beaches. If you are going to a park or just walking around for a length of time you may be subject to sunburn. Again, I stress that this can still occur during the winter months.
