Tampa Attractions

Tampa attractions to enjoy on vacation

What makes Tampa a great destination? Weather, architecture and of course, the many Tampa attractions. The Tampa Cruise Port is world class, and Tampa itself is a wonderful away from home to prepare for a cruise. Also to quarantine after disembarking. So whether you’re about to sail, or looking for a great holiday with the personal touch, Erehwon Retreat is ideal.

Discover why you’re safer in our vacation rentals.

Natural Beauty

Our vacation home rentals sit under 90-year-old camphors and Laurel Oak trees. You can take a cool dip in the Gulf of Mexico (23 miles) or Sulphur Springs Pool (1.5 miles). Let us suggest many quiet hikes and springs within an hour’s drive. Maybe you’d enjoy kayaking on the Hillsborough River, swim with the manatees, or pick up the pace with an Airboat ride. Perhaps you’d enjoy a round of golf? In Florida the outdoor possibilities are endless.

Ulele for OystersDowntown Excitement

Amongst the many other Tampa attractions we have brewpubs, fine cuisine, art, dazzling dance clubs and a century of Cuban culture. There are so many treasures to discover. Our vacation rentals are just three miles from downtown. So it’s easy to bike, jog, scooter downtown.  Of course you’ll meet locals and like-minded travelers strolling the Riverwalk. It’s perfect for stopping into Ulele’s for Oysters or riding the Pirate water taxi.

Cruise Ships

Start your cruise early or take a few days to recoup at the end of your adventure. Our vacation rentals are within easy access of Tampa’s cruise ship terminal.

 

Local Happenings

Why not be part of annual celebrations like the famous Plant City Strawberry Festival (think 100,000 cake or biscuit shortcakes)?  Other Tampa attractions include the Tampa Bay Food & Wine Festival and Bicycle Bash by the Bay. Finally, there's the Gasparilla Pirate Festival and Parade, held each January since 1904.

So why not kick off your flip-flops and let the Gulf Shore breeze carry you to sun-kissed fun 245 days a year?
