Tampa Weather Conditions
January, February, and March are the best times to visit Tampa because the weather is usually warm with low humidity and averages a comfortable 22°C.

If you can stand the heat, however, you'll find great off-season hotel rates and fewer crowds during the summer months. May, October, and November are also good times to visit if you prefer a balance between smaller crowds and comfortable weather.
Popular Attractions in Tampa
Many travellers head to Tampa just for the beaches, but there are plenty of other things to do, including Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, Busch Gardens, and the Adventure Island water park. When you need a break from the sun and heat, you can spend a few hours at the Tampa Museum of Art or the Tampa Bay History Centre, and sports lovers can take in a Tampa Bay Buccaneers football game or Tampa Bay Lightning hockey game during the appropriate seasons. Whatever your plans are, make your first stop at ebookers to find great deals on flights to Tampa.
