Grab a cold beer on the Tampa Riverwalk
    Tampa’s latest downtown attraction is, well, pretty much the coolest part of downtown. From the Channelside District up along the east side of the Hillsborough River to Tampa Heights and the very hip restaurants and event spaces of the old Armitage Works building, this pedestrian thoroughfare ties together everything from public art and retail to parks, culture and dining. Park the car and get culture all around downtown (The Straz! The Tampa Museum of Art! The library!) on foot, rental bike or water taxi, popping in here or there to cool off. It’s a day well spent.
