Is a terrifying prospect for those of us from Tampa. But if you go on a Sunday afternoon armed with a family scavenger hunt it’s not so bad.
My son is 5, but you could change this up depending on your child’s age (or you could make it an “adult” hunt by adding line items like “local brewery”, “rainbow flag”, “panhandler” and “drag queen.”)
Colt squealed in delight every time he spied something from our list, and it was a good opportunity for us to practice his letters and numbers.
When we were done with our hunt in Ybor, we hopped on the TECO streetcar and trollied over to Channelside. (If you have a lot of time, you could go see the Florida Aquarium, but the scavenger hunt and lunch took us about three hours, so we were pooped!)
