In central Florida, just north of Tampa, the area of Thonotosassa is a great bridge between the hustle and bustle of city living and the natural beauty you can find in tropical Florida. In between the Gulf Coast shore and swamp and wooded wilderness of central Florida, Thonotosassa is the perfect middle ground and can provide any adventurer with plenty of opportunities for exploration and enjoyment. The population of Thonotosassa is quickly rising and once you visit the area, you will understand why.

Even when you rent an RV, sometimes it’s still nice to not have to drive it around. One perk of securing an RV in Hillsborough County is the HART bus and transit system. Though based in Tampa, the system serves the entire Hillsborough County area. This can come in handy when you book an RV in Thonotosassa, FL.

Thonotosassa may not be the first place that comes to mind when you think of a Florida vacation, but it is soon going to climb up your list of desired travel destinations.

The Great Outdoors

Just north of Thonotosassa is the Lower Hillsborough Wilderness Preserve. Actually a collection of several recreation areas, the preserve is determined to maintain the ecological diversity and natural beauty of central Florida. Visitors are more than welcome to canoe or kayak through the rivers or hike any distance of the 60 miles of trails that exist within the boundaries.

If you are looking to get a feel of Florida swamps, then look to Green Swamp Wilderness Preserve near Dade City. With a giant loop trail, you can do as little or as much as you want and get to see some of the most pristine and untouched landscapes and wildlife in Florida. Often described as a hidden gem, Green Swamp is quintessential Florida.

If you’re really looking to get to some of Florida’s most well known natural features, drive your Thonotosassa RV rental three hours south to Everglades National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. You can take a guided airboat tour of the park, canoe and kayak through the quieter wetlands, or hike through some of the drier spots. Or, you can just sit and watch the water and keep an eye out for some of those famed Florida alligators and water birds.

Even if none of that appeals to you, you can always drive to the other side of Tampa, only about thirty minutes, and spend some time on the Gulf Coast beach and soak up some sun and listen to the water.

RV Parks

When you book a camper rental in Thonotosassa, you’re going to need to find a place to call home. Luckily, there are several places in and around Thonotosassa where you can set up camp.

You can spend your time at Southern Aire RV Resort, just north of Thonotosassa. Here, you will be right on the shores of a private lake while also having access to full hookups, laundry facilities, WiFi, and several recreational activities such as shuffleboard and a swimming pool.

If you’re looking for something a little more central, look to Tampa East RV Resort, the Oaks. Just south of Thonotosassa, this spot has full hookups, fire rings, WiFi access, laundry facilities, and an on-site convenience store.  

Explore the City

After exploring all around central and southern Florida, you may want to turn back to the place where you rented your RV. There is plenty in the area to see and do and keep you amused during your stay.

If you want something eclectic to remember your trip by, you can head to the Big Top Flea Market with the Thonotosassa motorhome rental on either Saturday or Sunday and browse the stalls and even pick up some fresh, local produce. With hundreds of vendors every week selling a wide variety of goods, you’re sure to find something you either need or just have to have.

If you want to see a little more wildlife while on the Thonotosassa rental RV vacation, but in a much more controlled setting, head just south of Thonotosassa to Tampa where you will find the Florida Aquarium. You can meander through the exhibits and view the local and exotic fish and other marine animals and learn more about the various aquatic environments of the world. If you’re feeling a little more adventurous, you can get into the tanks yourself and go swimming in the coral reef exhibit or with some of the smaller sharks.

After your days of exploring and adventuring, you’re going to want something hearty to replace all those calories you’ve burned on your hikes through the wetlands and swims with the sharks. The perfect way to do this is to treat yourself to some locally caught red snapper or mahi-mahi.
