Tampa Trip, where to stay, what to do, fun places to eat

We are traveling to Tampa in October to go to a Bucs game. We are coming in 3 days early. We would like to stay at somewhere kid friendly and fun!! (Nick jr is too far away, but that type/style) also, what are some don't miss things in Tampa? Is Busch Gardens only a zoo really? Or does it have lots of rides also? Ages are 15,9,8 - what theme park do you suggest? Also, is Clearwater beach worth the trip? We go to destin a lot, is it similar or clearer? Thanks in advance!!

5 seconds on the Busch Gardens site would tell you that no, it's absolutely not *just* a zoo. The other sites will mention the great zoo (Lowry Park Zoo) that wins national awards, the excellent Florida Aquarium, the Glazer Childrens' Museum, and more about the beach than you'd thought to ask.
