The Land of The Unfruitful Guava

Florida, July 03, 2014: The Guava tree is considered to be a familiar sight within the cities of Central America as well as the Caribbean and South America. Being a tropical tree, however, it is something that one cannot easily find within the state of Florida. That being the case, it can be quite intriguing why the city of Tampa, has been called The Big Guava.

The moniker, "The Big Guava" was actually a play on the fact that a businessman by the name of Gavino Gutierrez once unsuccessfully decided to grow Guava in the area, which was in demand at that time. This "failure" of sorts actually was what made Tampa the place that it is today.

Tampa sits within the Hillsborough County within Florida. At one point in the past, it served as the home of Tocobaga and the Pohoy tribes. By 16th century, the place was already discovered by the Spaniards as well as other Europeans which, unfortunately, brought along with them certain strain of viruses that wiped out the said tribes. A few years later, the site became an incorporated village named, "Tampa".

While Tampa might be rich in history, it is its tourist attractions that has actually more and more tourists flocking to it. Some of these attractions are The Florida Aquarium, the Ballast Point Park, the Dinosaur World, the River Tower Park, and the Busch Gardens.

If you are intent on making sure that you get to see all that Tampa has to offer, you need to make sure that you book yourself in any of the hotels in Tampa Florida. One of these hotels near Busch Gardens that you might want to consider is the Rodeway Inn.
