Location, location, location!

The American Planning Association recently announced that the Tampa Riverwalk won their Greatest Places in America: People’s Choice Award. This award recognizes an outstanding location in America, known for its excellent urban planning. The Tampa Riverwalk won this distinction thanks to public votes.

The Tampa Convention Center is proud to be located along this beautiful 2.6-mile waterfront path. Visitors can step out of our south exits right onto the Tampa Riverwalk to enjoy waterfront views and the Florida sun.

The Riverwalk connects some of the most popular attractions downtown, including the Tampa Bay History Center, the Tampa Museum of Art, Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park, the Straz Center, and the popular Ulele Restaurant. Our convenient location as one of the waypoints along the Riverwalk gives guests access to these hotspots in Tampa’s downtown.

The Tampa Convention Center would like to wish the Tampa Riverwalk a big congratulations for this well-deserved honor.
