Tampa caters to a wide variety of travellers every year, from the big-spending to the budget-conscious. Aave on Tampa accommodation by booking a two-star hotel in Downtown Tampa or further east towards the Brandon area.
Use Expedia to find two-star hotels with spacious rooms and dedicated play areas for kids, if you’re travelling as a family. If you’re looking for a more romantic stay in Tampa, look for two-star Spanish-themed accommodation with sunny balconies and a complimentary buffet breakfast.
Outdoor swimming pools lined with palm trees and deck chairs are also a common feature among Tampa’s two-star hotels. If you’re staying for more than a week or so, consider specialised budget hotels with kitchenettes, so you can cook your own food and save on dining out costs.
Tampa has plenty of reasonably priced museums where you can find air-conditioned respite from the Florida heat while immersing yourself in the local culture. The Tampa Museum of Art has eight galleries for you to browse and an impressive collection of beautiful Greek and Roman artefacts.
Take a walk through its riverfront sculpture garden and end your visit with a stop at the museum’s shop and cafe.
For a more niche historic museum, check out the Tampa Firefighters Museum. This museum is dedicated to all those who have served as firefighters in Tampa since its founding, and it includes plenty of information on modern fire safety.
Due to its warm climate, Tampa sees a steady stream of sun-seeking visitors throughout the winter months. If you find yourself in Tampa in the winter season, visiting the Manatee Viewing Center at Apollo Beach is a must. Watch the marine mammals from the observation decks above the water or visit the educational building to learn more about how to protect this endangered species.
Tampa is a favourite destination both for Florida residents and tourists alike, as well as the perfect place for budget travellers to enjoy a two-star stay near to affordable attractions.
