TopGolf is such a great place to enjoy with friends and family! In fact, the night of my graduation I went there with my Dad and some fraternity brothers of mine. It has something for everyone like: food, great drinks, large beer menu, games for kids, and of course the golfing aspect. Top Golf is not your ordinary driving range by a long-shot. Each bay is decked out with TV screens that display different game modes and the distance of each of your shots. Unlike traditional driving ranges, Top Golf has a sensor in front of a bowling-style ball deposit bay. The player can just waive their club in front of the sensor, and a ball is deposited out of the bay. So there is no need for a bucket of balls.
Pros: -The atmosphere -The food is amazing -Different take on traditional driving ranges -The beer menu -The experience
Beach Bar is one of my favorite places to eat and see live entertainment in Tampa! The atmosphere is electric, and the food and drinks are awesome! The last time I went with my friends and girlfriend the weather was awesome which made the experience that much better. I highly recommend having a Sunday Funday at Beach Bar.
Pros: -The atmosphere -The live performances -The drinks -The food -The people -The location
There's not enough nice things I can say about how great of a day I had kayak fishing with my girlfriend via iTrekkers. Our tour guide Matt (Brew) was an excellent tour guide, and was very funny and entertaining. He made our trip really nice. My girlfriend was in a kayak and I was on a paddle board equipped with a chair strapped to the board. Both crafts had pole stands, waterproof coolers, and a GoPro. The equipment we used was top of the line, we caught lots of sheepshead we got to keep, and we had a top of the line experience. Highly recommend iTrekkers excursions.
Pros: -Awesome outdoors experience -Hassle free fishing, hiking, camping -Great staff, very entertaining
The experience you get at Amalie Arena when you attend a lightning game is simply incredible. The atmosphere is electrifying, fans are cheering, and it is very apparent that hockey is here to stay in Tampa Bay. The Lightning are revered by fans throughout the Tampa Bay Area, and the camaraderie you feel in the stands with the other fans is something truly awesome. The Lightning offer a next level sports experience. If you're a student, ask about Student Rush Tickets!
Pros: -Not a bad seat in the house -A TON of places to eat -Student rush tickets
This museum is a necessary venue that we need in our community to remember those that lost their lives in the Holocaust and the brave men and women that stood up against the Nazis. I learned a lot touring this museum, and I highly recommend going to see this attraction. You will leave somber and solemn; but it is a necessary reflection that we must partake in from time to time to remember those that were affected by the atrocities surrounding the Holocaust.
Pros: -This experience makes you reflect on this atrocities committed in one of the darkest times in human history. -You will leave this museum feeling grateful for your current life, it will put things in perspective in regards to how good we have it compared to those
I started my college career at USF-St. Petersburg. There's not enough great things to say about USFSP. It's right in the heart of Downtown St. Petersburg, it is in walking distance to all the attractions downtown, Publix, the Dali museum, and the Mahaffey Theater. USFSP has a great campus culture and made my freshman year and first semester of sophomore year amazing. I made friends that I will have forever there, and memories that will last a lifetime.
Pros: -Great campus culture -The proximity to downtown -Great student living options -Right on the water.
As someone who actually used to work for Pia's, I have first-hand experience with how great the food is! The owner's Tom Goff and Pia Goff are great people and they both love to make people happy and see people enjoying their food as if they were a guest in their home. Pia's employs great staff members who truly care about the dining experience of their guests. My favorite room in the restaurant is the candelabra room that is solely lit by dozens of candelabras and smaller candles on the table. The ambiance in this room is crazy awesome. I recommend Pia's Trattoria to anyone who loves amazing Italian cuisine and quality customer service from staff that treats you like a guest in their own home.
Pros: -Amazing ambiance -Incredible food -Great location right by the beach in Gulfport -Great staff
Mojo Books and Records is by far my favorite store in Tampa. I love collecting vintage records and checking out their extensive book collection. The coffee shop is killer as well! Such great coffee. When I was at USF I would often spend my time at Mojo books as it became one of my preferred hangouts.
Pros: -huge record collection -rare records -abundance of books of all genres -amazing coffee from Buddy brew
I eat at Bruegger's Bagels quite a bit since I work downtown. The staff is always friendly and accommodating , the venue is really clean and smells like freshly made bagels and coffee, and THE FOOD IS AWESOME! The jalepeno bagel is one of my favorites as well as cinnamon raisin.
Pros: -Amazing bagels -great coffee -great atmosphere
My girlfriend have been going to SoFresh for a while now, and we always have excellent food and service when we go there! We would always go to the SoFresh location on Fowler by USF after we got out of class. SoFresh has the best steak wraps with pesto, I usually eat two when we go. I highly recommend SoFresh if you want to have really good while eating something that is genuinely good for you!
This place has such a cool vibe and the food is absolutely exquisite! Great place for date night!
