Summer is about sun and fun. For this reason, among the popular states to visit during this season is Florida. With its beaches, theme parks, and tourist destinations, it's no wonder that this state has consistently welcomed travelers and tourists year after year. One of the most popular destinations, aside from Orlando, is Tampa Bay Florida. With a long beach that stretches far into the city coastline, travel to Tampa is one of the most popular things to do this summer, especially if you want to avoid the crowds in Orlando.
In case you do not have the budget for a plane ticket to go to Tampa, you could always have a road trip, which is another must experience during summer. The city can be easily accessed via highway so, with good friends or family in the car, a map, and some snacks, starts your trip.
