6. Adventure Island water park is officially open for the season. If you purchased the Busch Gardens Fun Pass that also included admission to Adventure Island, then you’re in luck. Hop between parks for a day filled with adventure.

7. An affordable family day trip is not too far away. Spend the day at Buccaneer Bay at Weeki Wachee Spring State Park. Slip and slide on the waterslide, watch a mermaid show, play on the playgrounds, catch the animal shows and more.

 

8. Seems only fitting to make it to the beach during spring break. Thankfully there are so many to choose from and it’s an easy and cheap way to entertain the entire family. Some of our favorites include Honeymoon Island, Siesta Key and Pass-a-Grille beach.

 

Spring Break: Get Creative

9. Kids of all ages will love to create their own masterpieces. Pottery and painting locations around Tampa is great for all ages and it makes for a great family keepsake. Plan ahead and create a Mother’s or Father’s Day gift. Many locations offer discount days on their studio fee. Find the closest pottery studio and check out their calendar for discounts/specials.

 

Spring Break: Strawberry Galore

10. Most U-Pick Strawberry Farms are open for the season. With prices as low as 50 cents a quart, it’s definitely worth the trip. Check out our Tampa Bay list of U-Pick Strawberry farms.

11. Stop by the Parkesdale Farm Market for some strawberry milkshake and their world famous, strawberry short cake in Plant City. You’ll thank us later;-).

12. The 2017 Strawberry Festival has something for everyone. Rides, games, live entertainment, food and tons of strawberry concoctions. The festival runs from March 2-12, 2017.

 

Spring Break: Movie Date

13. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could watch a movie and eat real food? Well you definitely can, and at these two locations you can bring the entire family. Studio Movie Grill in Tampa offers an eat-in experience while watching a movie and if you head on over to Villagio Cinemas in Carrollwood, you’ll enjoy the motorized recliners as you watch the latest blockbuster.

14. These classic Drive-In movie theatres will bring you down memory lane and save you a few bucks off of your movie ticket for spring break.

 

Spring Break: Make it Educational

15. Stop by the Manatee Viewing Center for free admission before they close for the season in April. Make sure to visit the new ray tank while you’re there. After your visit with the manatees, take a short drive to the beautiful Ringling Museum.

16. On Mondays The Ringling Museum in Sarasota offers free admission to their Museum of Art, including special exhibition galleries. Huge playground onsite for the little ones. Regular admission pricing applies if you wish to visit the Circus Museum or Ca’d’Zan.

While you’re there, walk over to the nearby beautiful and well kept Florida Botanical Gardens for free admission.

 

 

Spring Break: Good Eats

18. Mini Doughnuts is the newest craze and the greatest part– customization! Make it apart of your bucket list to visit The Mini Doughnut Factory in Tampa or Remi’s Minis in Riverview.

19. We have yet to meet a child who doesn’t love Froyo! There are so many locations and you can even find them in gas stations. Our favorite flavor is Dreamsicle from Happy Cow Frozen Yogurt.

20. A dinner and a show is what you get at Hibachi Grills across Tampa Bay. We love that Kobe has kids eat free deal on Tuesdays when you register for their rewards program.
