tampa date night

Since starting Tampa Date Night Guide a few years ago, we have been blown away by how many fun things there are to do in the Tampa Bay area. Tampa not only has the beaches and the bay (which means loads of exciting water-based activities) but you'll also find a thriving restaurant and art scene. There are so many romantic experiences, venues and adventures waiting for you on the other end of I-4 in Tampa, St. Pete and Clearwater. We totally recommend planning a day, overnight or getaway to explore all that Tampa has to offer.
