I plan on visiting Tampa in January and need some advice as where to stay
I do not think I want to stay in Clearwater
Can anyone give advice as to where to stay within Tampa?
Which sections of Tampa are better in terms of walking around to activities and sites?

What do you plan to in Tampa? Do you have any ideas/seen things you’re leaning towards seeing? It is a big city and does have nature related sights, but outside of the area some.
In Tampa you have the Downtown area (perfect for Channelside and Ybor – Which is very Historic). The Hyde Park area is also very nice and also close to Downtown. Then there is Davis Island… Close, yet secluded. All areas are either walkable or can (should be $3 ride in those areas 1-way in case you won’t have a car)

Sofetch15: Busch Gardens, aquarium and the Zoo.
I would like to stay in an area that is accessible to the highways
How hard is it to get from St Petes/Clearwater to Tampa- mapquest says about 30 minutes
I am also looking to stay in an area that allows you to walk and roam….. not a fan of driving from stop to stop
I would prefer a hilton or marriott as i have a ton of hotel points that i can use
