On Tampa Bay, along Florida's Gulf Coast, is a city named after the many lightning strikes received in the area - Tampa may mean "Sticks of Fire" (derived from the Calusa language spoken by a Native American Tribe that lived in Tampa Bay area). Tampa is a major business center. Museums and other cultural offerings can be found there. Ybor City neighborhood, developed by Cuban and Spanish cigar-factory workers at the turn of the 20th century, is a wonderful dining and nightlife destination...What else can be found there?
Orlando pretty much equates to family-fun, which is a good thing for families like mine that may have three or more little monsters tearing up the living room couch. Orlando is a playground for kids and adults alike. This is where all parents try to achieve that sweet spot a bit earlier...bed time. Take them to the theme parks and drain those kiddies' energy levels so they simply pass out from over-stimulation. But Orlando has other hidden gems that are muted from the rats' excessive marketing machine....I'll try to relay the few gems, but forgive me if I show two or three more theme park-related images; Search engines are virtually over-run by images of Studios or mice when simply searching "Orlando".
