Quick And Easy Top road trip destinations for Tampa Bay drivers. It’s not too soon or too late to plan that family summer vacation for 2022. If you can’t get away for long, there are plenty of places within driving distance from the Tampa area. Perhaps some of these ideas could be the way to enjoy those summer months.

Right here in the Tampa Bay area, we have Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, Florida Aquarium, Clearwater Marine Aquarium, ZooTampa, beaches, etc. You know and might already enjoy visiting our most local attractions. If you want to get out of the immediate area, here are some suggestions:

  • 1. Clearwater Beach:

    The Pinellas County beaches have lots of options from the bustle of Clearwater to the more serene Indian Rocks Beach.
