Downtown Tampa, Florida

January is a nice time to be in Tampa, for the most part. It can get cold, but mostly the weather is pleasant if not raining. We chose a beautiful, sunny day to go to downtown Tampa and check it out. Were pleasantly surprised to see a modern, well designed river walk pretty much encircling downtown Tampa. We strolled from the Straz Performing Arts Center, past Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, past the Sail Pavilion, all the way to the Tampa Bay History Center. A model for any town with a river (hint, hint, Sacramento).



Went into the downtown area and passed Sacred Heart Catholic Church on N. Florida Ave.


And onto N. Franklin St. pedestrian walkway past the Taco Bus

So, more to come. Love to hear what you have to say about our travels.
