Sometimes you need to get out of the house on those rainy days and do something other than binge on Netflix. South Tampa does not disappoint. While I cannot guarantee that you will remain completely dry, you should find most of these areas manageable. Hyde park for shopping, eating, drinking and a movie. Britton Plaza for shopping, eating and a movie. Ybor City is great on rainy days as there is a ton of stuff to do. The Westshore Mall is good on rainy days for adults and children. When was the last time you went bowling? You have three choices in South Tampa; Channelside, Pinarama, and Gametime in Ybor. The location in Ybor has duck pins, or whatever the little bowling pins are called. If you are up for the meatballs and madness, you can check out Ikea. Kids can burn off their extra energy at Playgrounds of Tampa, The Children's Museum, GameTime, or the Aquarium. Sometimes it is nice to watch the rain in the comfort of one of our waterfront restaurants.
