Near the Best Florida Theme Parks
Tampa amusement parks + Orlando theme parks
TradeWinds Island Resorts puts the Tampa Bay area’s top amusement parks and attractions right at your fingertips. Let your inner explorer run wild at nearby Busch Gardens, where high-impact thrill rides combine with exotic African animals and captivating performers to get everyone’s heart racing. Afterward, visit the neighboring Adventure Island water park to cool off as you head down corkscrew slides and waterfalls or relax as you float along a rambling river.
Ft. DeSoto Park boasts the #1 Beach by TripAdvisor in 2008 and 2009, where you can ride, skate or jog on the 7-mile paved trail, canoe and kayak through lush mangroves, or fish from two free piers. Rover can roam at the Paw Playground and frolic in the surf at Dog Beach, while kids explore the canons and jail cells of the old fort. The nature lover will discover a host of other nature parks and birding trails throughout the area.
For even more excitement, take the short two-hour drive over to Orlando, the theme park capital of the world. You can meet your favorite characters at Walt Disney World, watch your favorite aquatic creatures put on a show at SeaWorld, meet some of Florida’s most interesting wildlife at Gatorland, or spend the day at one of the other many parks.
