DOWNTOWN AND RIVERWALK TOUR – 7K

Runner on the ground - LAURA

We will take off from the Tampa Convention Center and make our way along Tampa’s stunning, and recently renovated, Riverwalk. Lined with palm trees and endlessly gorgeous views of the water, we will jog by many of Tampa’s most commonly sought out attractions, such as the Tampa Theatre, University of Tampa, Amalie Area (for all of you ice hockey fans), Old City Hall, Curtis Hixon Park and many more.

Most of our sight-run will be along the river, as your guide tells you about the history of Tampa, as well as Tampa, today. As the smell of Cuban bread fills the air from the Columbia Café, we will break off from the Riverwalk and head downtown. Running right through the center of bustling downtown, you’ll learn all about Old City Hall and The Tampa Theatre (known as one of the most beautiful theatres in the world, as well as one of the most haunted buildings in the city). We’ll even breeze by the famous Tampa postcard before making our way to the former Tampa Bay Hotel (now University of Tampa), which is by far the most beautiful building in the city and one that is rich with Tampa history.

Along this beautiful sight-run, you won’t be limited to just a list of tourist sights. We will point out the more local spots to go, while giving suggestions for anything else that you might be curious about. And, who knows? You may see dolphins, manatees or maybe even an alligator along the way, so keep your eyes peeled!

    I had the best time running with Laura on two private tours. She catered both tours to my needs. The tours were informative and had allowances for creativity. She has extensive knowledge of Tampa’s history. Laura should add run photography to her many list of talents as we had so much fun capturing moments with video and photography along the way. Not to mention she knows all the go to eateries as well. On day two I was tired from all the fun we had day one so we walked the majority of the tour. The whole experience was like catching up with a girlfriend I hadn’t seen in a while. 10/10 definitely recommend. I will be booking with Laura every time I return to Tampa.

    Highly recommend!

    I’m kind of shy so I was a bit nervous going into this run. Would conversation be awkward? Is my pace too slow? Within minutes I realized my concerns were silly; Laura is super sweet and friendly and immediately made me feel comfortable. I could tell she wanted to hit my expectations by asking if there was anything specific I wanted to see and customized my tour. She was also super knowledgeable and showed me areas I had never seen — and I’ve lived here 20 years! I can’t wait to book one of her upcoming tours (top of list: haunted/ghost tour).

    Amazing. Absolutely amazing. I met Laura for the 6:30 DT/Riverwalk tour. Her pace was great, her knowledge top-notch. She is even a great photographer. Highly recommend and look forward to their other options.

    Awesome Tour and Run

    Tracy Sarallo

    I just moved here and wanted to learn about my city, I also just started running again. So this combination was awesome. Laura was very knowledgeable about the city and landmarks to learn about. Before i knew it we ran 4 miles. Laura adjusted to my pace, stopped when needed (my request or a beautiful spot to learn about)! A very enjoyable morning to appreciate the city!! Thanks I look forward to running in other cities near me and learning about those cities too!! Thanks awesep, Tour!

    The best way to see the city!

    I came to Tampa for a conference at the end of March. I met up with Laura at 6am!! It was such a great way to start the day. Laura was an engaging host and very knowledgeable. She was also very encouraging since there were runners of all different abilities. I was able to set a personal distance record since I’m new to running. This just made my week. Definitely take this opportunity when you come to Tampa.

    Awesome experience with a great guide

    Karron

    I did a 6am tour of downtown Tampa with Laura in March. The meet-up point by the waterfront was easy to find and she was on time. There were 4 of us on the run of differing abilities. I think Laura managed to strike a pace that kept the front runners engaged without leaving the slower runner far behind. Also, pauses were included to check out some interesting sites and probably to ensure that everyone got back together at intervals. It must have been a challenge but Laura managed to pull it off. The city tour commentary was very interesting and engaging, especially the history of the old theatre now protected by the city and the former hotel across the bridge that is now a part of a school/university. We picked up the pace near the end and finished on a high.
    Laura was a very pleasant, engaging, knowledgeable guide. I highly recommend her if you are visiting Tampa and want to get a tour with a difference.

    Did the Downtown and Riverwalk Tour last time I visited Tampa! It was well worth it! We went early to beat the heat – the weather was sunny and perfect with a slight breeze. We were able to take as many drink breaks as I needed and spent the breaks learning about the historic buildings in downtown Tampa! I highly recommend this tour with Laura!
