Head over to Tropicana Field to check out a Tampa Bay Rays game in this family-friendly indoor stadium. You’ll love paying only $5 for tickets and enjoying activities with the whole family. There are great concessions to keep the kids happy all afternoon and a Pro Shop to pick up souvenirs.
Harry Waugh Dessert Room – 1208 South Howard Avenue, Tampa
If you haven’t been to Bern’s Steak House’s Harry Waugh Dessert Room, it’s time to stop here for a delicious afternoon or a special date night. You’ll find almost 50 dessert options and hundreds of dessert wines and spirits. It’s located on the second floor of the steak house and it offers amazing privacy as everyone sits in redwood wine holding tank-style booths that came from a California redwoods. Order the Macadamia Nut Ice Cream and enjoy a relaxing conversation.
Of course a visit to the Dali Museum in St. Pete’s, an afternoon playing laser tag at Q-Zar, or hitting a great brewpub like Cigar City Brewing are also very popular for an indoor day in Tampa. Check out these top Tampa attractions for some indoor activity.
