Golf Destination Tampa
Tampa has the big-city feel without the big-city problems of too much traffic. The Spanish-influenced Ybor City amps up a party vibe for downtown. There's a great sports scene with the Buccaneers, Rays and Lightning, along with the Outback Bowl on New Year's Day, spring training for the New York Yankees at George M. Steinbrenner Field, and also a venerable stop on the PGA Tour's "Florida Swing." If your game isn't ready for the Copperhead course at Innisbrook, there are 100 other choices within an hour's drive.
