    One of the best spots in South Tampa to take your family, you can go fishing off the pier, kids can go play in the park and splash area, and mom and Dad can have a nice quiet lunch.

    Don't be in a hurry, since you won't be getting anywhere fast. Waited for my food through half the Blue Angels exhibition.
