A Night with The Stars UNDER the Stars in Tampa

The rest of the country is heading back to school and thinking about getting out windbreakers and boots in preparation for fall weather but here in Tampa, Florida Summer is still going strong! The nights are still warm and one of the best ways to enjoy the balmy evenings is to spend it watching a movie in one of the classic drive-in theaters around town. If you’re just ending a visit to one of the most beautiful places on earth then you might want to check out one of the new homes for sale in Tampa, Florida and you can enjoy entertainment like this almost all year long!

Drive-In theatres are part of classic Americana. Generations of youth went on their first dates to the drive-in, and families have found it to be an affordable outing for the whole gang. If you’re looking for a great memory-making family activity, this is the one.

There’s not much better than enjoying one of your favorite movies…outside…by the ocean. Unless it’s also FREE. The Sunset Cinema at Pier 60 offers free movies under the stars every Friday and Saturday night starting at dusk. You’ll be able to watch old favorites as well as more recent blockbusters. Watch the weather and the sunset, and get there early to make sure you have a spot. Don’t forget your blanket or a low-profile lawn chair to sit in!
