Tampa: Named A Best February Place To Go
Of course, we’re of the mind that southern Florida is always a great place to visit. However, for snowbirds or adventure-seekers, Fifty Grande recently published seven of the best places to go in the country this February, and Tampa was among them.
“You have two choices this time of year: escape winter or head full-on into it,” Fifty Grande says. While much of their list is focused on escaping frigid temperatures, they don’t completely leave out snow-filled destinations. In fact, Breckenridge, Colorado, is the first destination highlighted.
Florida then takes up two of the remaining six spots. Miami is the first Sunshine State city to make an appearance. For many obvious reasons, South Beach is always a popular getaway destination. Almost every major American airport flies into Miami regularly. Then, an abundance of nightlife, food, and miles of beach await you.
Hitting Tampa In February
Here is what is unique to Tampa in February that makes it a great time of year here. Aside from the great weather, we have numerous events to enjoy. On the heels of Gasparilla Pirate Fest, the music festival takes place February 16 – 18. Fifty Grande highlights this saying, “If you need added reason to book a trip to Tampa, this festival, which was voted ‘Best Festival in Tampa Bay,’ is it.” Sofi Tukker and Nas headline this year.
Drake and J. Cole will also make a tour stop in Tampa this February. The It’s All A Blur Tour will hit the Amalie Arena on February 2.
In addition to music, February means the return of baseball. MLB Pitchers and catchers report in about two weeks. At George M. Steinbrenner Field, the New York Yankees begin their Spring Training schedule shortly as well. They will play their first home game on February 25 vs. the Toronto Blue Jays.
Of course, the beloved Tampa Bay Rays head south to Port Charlotte during this time. However, their spring training facility is only about 100 miles away.
