    About Downtown Tampa

    For things to do in Tampa, check out the productions big and small at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts. See the fine exhibits at the brand-new Tampa Museum of Art, which offers lots of things to do for kids and families. Take in a show at the ornate Tampa Theatre, with its mighty Wurlitzer organ. Walk the pedestrian-friendly Franklin Street Mall. And speaking of walking, the Tampa Riverwalk winds along the Hillsborough River past the Straz Center, the Tampa Museum of Art, Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park and into the attraction-filled Channelside District. Be sure to visit the Glazer Children's Museum.
