Day Trips to Tampa and Orlando from Settler’s Rest

Take the day and explore the city – you’ve earned it. Settler’s Rest RV Resort is just 25 miles from Tampa and 60 miles from Orlando, making it a convenient place for launching day trips to many of Florida’s major attractions. Kick off your sightseeing list with a visit to signature attractions like Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo and Orlando’s SeaWorld.


Lowry Park Zoo

With one million visitors each year, the Lowry Park Zoo is one of the most popular zoological parks in the southeastern states. This man-made wilderness retreat is home to 1,300 animals and is well-reputed for its beautiful exhibits. As you venture through the zoo, expect unforgettable connections such as feeding a giraffe, touching a tortoise, and getting “nose-to-horn” with an Indian rhino.

Lowry Park Zoo is great for any age and very family-friendly, offering frequent events such as kids-only sleepovers and live shows at the ZooVentures outdoor amphitheater. Additionally, the zoo boasts several rides, a small roller coaster, and guided safari tours. Plan your trip today!


Although Orlando has the world-famous attractions of Disney World and Epcot, there are plenty of other major attractions available as well. One such attraction is SeaWorld, an extraordinary park with shows, rides, and animal encounters. Shows range from educational productions about killer whales to lighthearted performances involving sea lions; while the rides vary from thrilling roller coasters to tranquil paddleboats. Best of all, the animal encounters provide an exploration of the mysteries and wonders of the creatures of the sea.
