We live in Tampa and the Hillsborough River has become our favorite break from everyday life. Camping in the park is as good as it get's. A canoe ride anywhere on the river brings you within inches of nature. Everything from intimidating gators to delicate dragonflys. Keep an eye out for swimming critters, fish and turtles.

I have been canoeing down the Hillsborough River since I was a child & recently took my husband out to experience what I used to do. He loved it just as much as I always had. It is a great place to take in nature, watch turtles, fish, & gators. Oh the gators! :)

Took a bike ride along the Hillsborough river near 301.
Smooth pavement, nice scenery, peaceful, and alot of the bike path was shaded.

One stop dinner and movie. Food wasn't bad and the service is well timed with the start of the movie. Reservations are a must - place isn't that big.
