Discover the best things to do in Seffner

You can meet a crocodile up close or explore the many things to do in Seffner and Tampa when you choose to stay at the Country Inn & Suites, Tampa Casino-Fairgrounds. Our convenient location off I-4 and near I-75 makes it easy to head into Tampa to treat the kids to a day at Busch Gardens water park or The Florida Aquarium. Or you can take advantage of the three nearby rivers and the bay to learn more about local ecosystems. If the urban jungle is your choice of playground, head to ZooTampa at Lowry Park to see animals in a tropical setting.

Adults won’t want to miss the chance to see a Tampa Bay Buccaneers football game at Raymond James Stadium or a hockey game at Amalie Arena. If you’d like to test your luck, head to Seminole Hard Rock Casino for the table games. For a slower-paced day, paddle a canoe on the Hillsborough River through a wilderness park. There’s nothing better than a day on a sandy beach along the Gulf Coast, so plan a day trip to Indian Rocks or Madeira beaches.
