Florida's most unforgettable getaway
In Tampa Bay, a waterside stroll reveals treasured destinations at each turn. Every meal is an adventure paired with award-winning local craft beer. And you can feel the rush of world-class thrill rides one moment while meeting exotic animals from all over the world the next.
New treasures in every direction.
The Tampa Riverwalk conveniently links many must-experience destinations along a beautiful waterfront path. With 2.6 miles of scenic water views, you can stroll or bike to celebrated museums, picturesque parks, award-winning restaurants and family attractions, such as The Florida Aquarium on the path’s south end. For an even more adventurous experience, rent a standup paddle board or water bike, or ride the Pirate Water Taxi for a whole new view.
A food hall experience of historic proportions.
Armature Works at the Heights is a feast for the eyes, mind, and, of course, palate. This food hall is set in Tampa Electric’s old streetcar warehouse. While the building’s history stretches back to 1910, many of the original materials have been carefully recycled in Armature Works’ design.
The sheer variety of dining options offered makes Armature Works at the Heights a landmark in its own right. Barbecue, Mediterranean cuisine, wood-fired pizza, empanadas and more are all available, so you can mix and match your favorites before settling down to take in the view of boats passing by.
