Busch Gardens bus,tour?

Hi ,

We are two Aussies getting off a cruise ship in October spending two nights in Tampa at the Crowne Plaza West Kennedy Blv.

Would like to spend our full day at Busch Gardens.

Is there a bus?

Should we take a tour? Suggestions, please.

I don't want to hire a car because of driving on the right.

Renting a car will be the easiest, and most convenient way to get there. Other than that, a cab, or you could make it on the county bus system, but it is not the best system in the world, and will take some time, but could be done.

it won't be cheap, but a taxi would be the best route.

I totally understand your issue with driving on the right. I feel the same way about driving on the left. Have you looked into getting around to other places than Busch Gardens or do you plan to just spend a lot of time at the hotel?

If you want to get to Ybor City for dinner or do anything else you might as well start studying those bus routes.

That is a good point. The Crowne Plaza really is not near anything. There is a mall nearby, but not really walkable to anything. The hotels in Ybor City are much closer to the cruise port, and you would be able to walk to all of the restaurants, nightlife, and entertainment in Ybor. Would be a little closer to Busch Gardens also
