The Easter Egg-Stravaganza promises family fun with a Build-A-Bunny station, Easter basket deliveries, an Easter egg hunt in the Garden Courtyard, photos with the Easter bunny, and a poolside "dive-in" movie.

Pamper mom with spa treatments and enjoy a complimentary sip-and-savor reception.

Seas the Summer and Red, White & Views

TradeWinds Resorts also has planned exciting events for Memorial Day Weekend and the 4th of July in the coming year. "Seas the Summer" Memorial Day Weekend will feature live music, food and drink specials, a beachfront cookout, a holiday poolside party with games, contests, poolside crafts, and entertainment. The weekend will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display. The Red, White & Views 4th of July Weekend will offer a dazzling array of activities, including fireworks, cookouts, live music, food and drink specials, a family magic show, a pirate party, and sea glass wall art and jewelry making classes.

Looking Ahead 

The second half of 2024 is shaping up to be no less exciting than the first, with a full schedule of Labor Day Weekend Activities like the annual Bucs Beach Bash (co-hosted by the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers), a Halloween weekend complete with pumpkin-carving, trick-or-treating for the kids, and spooky campfire stories. And it all culminates by wrapping right back to Thanksgiving, set to feature a Turkey Trot fun run, apple-bobbing, pie-eating contests, and a sumptuous harvest dinner with all the traditional trimmings.  

New Culinary Experiences

TradeWinds Resorts is also proud to announce the opening of new bars and restaurants for 2024, enhancing the on-premises culinary experience for our guests.
