It’s time to get ready for Super Bowl LV in the making. Are you traveling down to Tampa, FL to join the party?If you know me at all you know that I am a die hard Seahawks Fan that now lives in Tampa Bay, FL. Raised just out side of Seattle and moved to Tampa, FL twenty-one years ago. After living in Tampa for over twenty years I am considered a “Tampa Girl” by most. Let’s be clear, my heart will always belong to Washington State and the Seahawks. As a “Tampa Girl” how do I not support our local team and the area for the Super Bowl. Do I hate Tom Brady, Yes and I am I a Bucs’ fan, No. However, as a NFL Football Fan it is a once in a life time experience to have your home town host a Super Bowl. As the local girl, I am going to give you the down low. Here is everything that you need to know from what to do, where to go, where not to go, and what not to miss!

Stop by Ulele before heading back to Curtis Hixon Park and grab yourself a Frose for the walk back. You can thank me later. http://www.ulele.com
Historic Ybor City is a must day or night. If your are looking for something more family friendly? Definitely check out 7th ave during the day and wonder around all the boutiques and vintage shops. Grab lunch at one of the many restraints. Ybor does get turned up after dark. Plan on an adult only night out filled with Night Clubs, Dive Bars, and Cigar Bars. My two favorite places in Ybor is the Monkey club and Ybor City Cigars. While you are here in Tampa you have to smoke a hand rolled cigar, trust me. https://yborcityonline.com
Skip Dave and Busters and check out Park & Rec. With outdoor yard games like life size connect 4, corn hole, arcade games, DJ and great food this is a adult playground. https://www.youthhasnoage.com
