Many families choose to travel on vacations, while others make plans closer to home and staycation in an effort to stretch thin budgets. For staycationers like me, West Tampa Bay is rich with events and activities for people of all ages!
Here are a few of my favorite pastimes that are great ways to pass the time during the long days and short nights of summer:
Now that SunWest Park is open, you’ll frequently find me there. Soft, white sandy beaches are beautiful against the blue water of the lakes. Relaxing by the water at a brand new venue is just what the doctor ordered!
I’m headed to the Trop for a Tampa Bay Rays fix! Attending a baseball game in person is so much more fun and exciting than watching it on TV. When the Rays are on the road, I do enjoy going to Fiddlers Green in Trinity to catch the game. Great food, great friends and great fun are on my agenda!
I highly recommend a visit to the Tarpon Springs Sponge Docks. Night in the Islands gives me the opportunity to be Greek, if only for a night! Plus, Dimitri’s on the Water has some of the best Greek cuisine on the Docks!
Wine Walk! Wine Walk! That, too, is held at the Sponge Docks, but also, downtown Tarpon Springs. As much as I love wine, that’s a must-do!
Thursday evenings are always the Sunset Beach Concert Series in Tarpon. You can never go wrong with a concert on the beach!
These are just a few of my faves, and my staycation schedule is filling up fast! At this rate, I’ll be stacationing the rest of the season! I’d better get busy…
