Get a taste of Tampa with a twist

Visit Tampa Bay will unveil its new cocktail book, Tampa with a Twist, at WTM London, showcasing cocktails created by local mixologists.

Known for its hip hospitality, the Florida destination features a host of cocktail bars as well as craft breweries.

The tourist board will also highlight a range of new attractions and openings scheduled for 2020.

Theme park attractions will include Iron Gwazi, which will be the tallest, fastest hybrid rollercoaster when it opens in spring 2020 at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.

Next year will also see the opening of a water ride called Solar Vortex at Adventure Island and the re-opening of an expanded Manatee Rehabilitation Center at ZooTampa at Lowry Park.

These new features follow the opening of Moon Bay, which offers visitors the chance to touch non-stinging jellyfish at The Florida Aquarium.

Next year will also see the opening of more than 1,500 hotel rooms, in properties such as JW Marriott in downtown; Aparium boutique in the historic Ybor City area; Current – which is part of Marriott Autograph Collection; and Hotel Alba, from Hilton Tapestry Collection.

There will be plenty of fresh eateries including new rooftop bars on the 26th floor of JW Marriott, the new Rox bar at Current hotel and M.Bird at Armature Works.

Other new restaurants include a waterfront oyster bar, a quirky waterfront bar in an Airstream camper, and an 80s-themed Gen X Tavern.

There will be plenty for sports fans visiting the city, with teams such as the Tampa Bay Lighting, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Tampa Bay Rays.

The region will be hosting Wrestlemania in April 2020, and the NFL Super Bowl LV will come to Tampa in 2021.

Meanwhile, the cruise market continues to expand, with Celebrity Cruises sailing to the western Caribbean from Port Tampa Bay in autumn 2020.
