Attractions and Activities

Flying in a private jet to Florida’s gulf coast is the best way to put yourself in Cigar City.

With all of its history, craft bars, culture, and untouched nature, Tampa is an awesome beach-side getaway for private jet travelers. The city has something for everyone, but a few industries are a bit more prominent. For instance, the craft cocktail scene is absolutely booming all around the downtown and more upscale areas.

You might have to wait a bit longer for your drink to hit the bar in front of you, but you can bet that the wait will be worth it. Watching the bartender mix your drink is part of the experience, and will have you wondering at how much goes in to one drink. One of the area’s best cocktail bars is the prohibition-themed Repeal 18, so don’t forget to spend an evening there.

Other than craft cocktails, Tampa has a thriving local beer brewing community. Famous gulf coast brewing company Cigar City was founded in Tampa, and has grown to a well-known East Coast brand. Bring your friends or clients to their iconic tasting room for a fun filled and exploratory evening.

Visitors chartering a private jet to the Gulf Coast won’t be limited to alcohol related activities; with gorgeous attractions like the manatee viewing center and Lettuce Lake National Park, the city provides plenty of family and g-rated activities for everyone.

Take the family for a day at Lettuce Lake and marvel at the gators, snakes, and other animals that inhabit the preserve. Or, if you need somewhere to entertain clients or colleagues, look no further than the easily reserved gazebos that are perfect for cookouts.

Tampa is, of course, a beachside town, so there are tons of ways to take in the sea air. And while there are plenty of beach view restaurants and bars, the best way to do this is via Bayshore Boulevard. Popular with locals and visitors alike, this scenic road provides perfect views of the shimmering Gulf of Mexico that will take that morning run or afternoon drive to the next level.
