By Barbara Ann Kelley, CBSTampa.com

With the weather so beautiful this time of year it’s a great opportunity to experience the best of the Bay area outdoors! Here are our top 5 picks of where you should spend your time wisely this week.

Sunset at Frenchy’s
Sip on a tropical drink on Clearwater Beach, watching surfers and beach goers pass by.  Definitely try the sandwich they’re famous for – the grouper sandwich. And if you still have room, be sure to try the fried oreos!

Feed A Tiger
Have you ever done one of the feeding tours at Busch Gardens? Go behind the scenes and help be a Zoo Keeper for a day. Learn where they sleep and even help feed them.

Home Improvement
Take advantage of the dry weather by getting the house painted.  Do some yard work you’ve been meaning to do. Studies show yard work improves mental and physical health. A day in working in the yard can burn 150 to 300 calories. Don’t forget to apply sun screen.

Go Ride a Bike
There are many low-traffic neighborhoods found throughout the Tampa Bay area which are friendly to bicyclists. In addition to the neighborhood trails there is the Suncoast Trail. The Suncoast Trail has 42 miles of multi-use paved paths that feature pleasing scenery and convenient facilities. The Trail starts in Hillsborough County through Pasco and into Hernando County.

Slide into Cool Fun
Adventure Island, a water park in Tampa, has day and night-time hours guaranteed to cool you down. Adventure Island’s 30 acres provide cool water-soaked excitement for all ages. It’s all about water and adventure with corkscrew slides, waterfalls, a giant wave pool, a rambling river, and other family attractions.
