What to do in Tampa Bay after Super Bowl XLIII
I'm coming to appreciate football more and more as my family gets involved with local and high school teams, but if we were headed to Super Bowl XLIII in Tampa Bay this year, I'd have to break away from all the sports hoopla and check out all the city itself has to offer.
So for those of you who are wondering how you'll spend your post-Super Bowl days in Florida, here are a few of my specialty travel suggestions:
Big Cat Rescue is an educational sanctuary is home to more than 100 exotic cats including newly rescued cougar, Sophia.
Tampa Bay Ghost Tours will take you to some of the spookiest places in the Bay area, with tours departing daily – under the cloak of darkness, of course.
Head over to Ybor City to see the rolling of traditional cigars at the Gonzalez y Martinez Cigar Factory.
New to Tampa, Pennsylvania's own (and America's oldest) Yuengling Brewery offers two daily tours Monday – Friday.
And no trip to Florida is complete without a day at the beach. Just outside of Tampa is 2008's winner of the "Top Beach in America" award, Caladesi Island Park.
For the cats,
