My family and I live in a suburb outside of Tampa Florida.
- One of our favorite things to do on a winter day is go to Busch Gardens.
Busch Gardens is a safari themed amusement park made for families to enjoy. A lot of people visit Busch Gardens in Tampa when they come to Florida for summer vacation. In my opinion, summer is the worst time to visit any Florida tourist attraction. First of all, most places are extremely busy during the summer season. Kids are out of school and parents are taking vacations. The second reason why summer is the worst time to visit places like Busch Gardens in Tampa is because of the Heat and the humidity. There is no access to air conditioning once you are inside the amusement park. The only places with air conditioning are the restaurants and gift shops. None of the ride lines are in an area with air conditioning, so you are forced to stand in line for 1 or 2 hours in 95° temperatures with 95% humidity. Most kids aren’t expecting Busch Gardens or any other theme park to be a miserable experience, so add complaining and whining children to the day. Those are the biggest reasons why I don’t prefer to visit the theme parks during the summer. The weather in Tampa during the winter season is actually quite mild and cool. In my humble opinion, this is the perfect time to hang out with friends and relax at one of the many Tampa Bay tourist attractions like Busch Gardens.
