We will be in Tampa 1/21-1/24 with two seven year old boys. We are flying into St Pete/Clearwater and have booked a rental car. Will be staying at the Doubletree Westshore. We decided against Bush Gardens and instead will be doing MOSI (probably on Saturday). Other than that we have not figured out other activities. I have read that the Childrens Gasparilla festivities will be going on 1/22. I am not sure if this is something worth going into down town for - traffic, parking etc. I would love to see the fireworks though but wonder where the best viewing location is. Also wondering about doing something in Clearwater. Suggestions for places to each would be welcomed as well. We will be looking for casual, but not typical kid eateries. Would love to get some good seafood one night. Also, any options for boat rides that don't cost a fortune?
