Tampa Downtown Partnership’s ‘Do the Local Motion’ kicked off its seventh season on Friday, October 3. ‘Do the Local Motion’ is a free, guided walking tour program offered to encourage exercise while showcasing Downtown Tampa’s attractions, history, and hidden gems with a different theme each walk. Program attendance and community support keeps growing with each year as we bring some new themed walks, while keeping some of the favorites in the schedule.
Tours are offered October through May, every first and third Friday of the month, departing at 12 noon from ‘Do the Local Motion Village’ in Lykes Gaslight Square Park. The one-hour walks begin with a quick warm up exercise led by a Downtown Y instructor.
The season is augmented with occasional evening and weekend tours*, including two evening fundraising tours at a Tampa Bay Lightning game in March and the Tampa Yankees game at Steinbrenner Field in April.
One of the many programs, Do the Local Motion is brought to you by Tampa Downtown Partnership and its partners.
