Laura was a great tour guide. I tried to convince myself that I’d be able to do the entire tour running, but my cardio is not the best so we had to walk part of it. Laura was great about staying at a pace I could do. The information she provided on the tour was cool. A lot of stuff I didn’t know, including the haunted history of a building. It was an awesome way to be able to see downtown in a way I normally wouldn’t. I would recommend to anyone, in shape or not, from out of town or a Tampa resident, young to older, Laura did a great job at personalizing the tour to fit the individual. She even let me be a dork and take photos along the way. Plus, the beer at the end of the brewery tour was great. Cool little brewery with a nice atmosphere that I didn’t really know was there.
When you think of Tampa, you may think of a sprawling business metropolis. But scratch the surface and you’ll find it packs an incredible amount of history, culture, sightseeing and just plain fun into a mid-sized city. From nature and history to restaurants and nightlife, our personal guide can show you what Tampa is really about.
Tampa’s downtown gives the feeling of a bigger city but is compact enough to see many historical and cultural sights in just a 5 km run. Our running tours cover everything from downtown Tampa to the must-see Ybor City (former Cigar Capital of the world) and everything in between.
Heading out onto the water, you can visit the islands, which hold their own interesting historical significance. The Riverwalk on the mainland is very popular among runners, with 4.2 km of architecture and greenery. It is also host to Tampa Riverfest, just one of many events on the Tampa festival calendar. Others include the Gasparilla Pirate, Music and Arts festivals, and the Margherita festival if you need an excuse to let your hair down.
Tampa’s climate makes for great running all year round, and unsurprisingly, running is popular in the city. This makes for a jam-packed calendar of running events, so it’s almost impossible to miss some kind of race. From the hardcore and serious to the ridiculous and novelty, Tampa is full of running activity.
When you don’t have time to cram everything into a walking tour, don’t sacrifice the sights, speed up the tour! Your knowledgeable local guide is waiting to tell you all about the city for your running tour in Tampa.
