Five Instagram Worthy Spots To check out in Tampa, FL

Hello guys, 

Looking for a instagram-able spot to check out this weekend? I got you covered. Today we are talking about the top five most picture worthy spots here in Tampa. 

1. Oxford Exchange 

You guessed it, and you were right. Any and everyone who follows my Instagram ( @officialsavvyj ) has definitely seen Oxford tagged in like practically all of my photos. Ok that might be a little extreme, but you get the gist...I'm there alot. Oxford is one of my fav places mainly because there is so much to do there. You can shop, get tea at Tea Bella, get coffee at Buddy Brew, try on glasses at Warby Parker, grab brunch in the beautiful courtyard, etc. There's always something to do, and the food is everything and more. Totally recommend going for a late lunch on a week day, to avoid the craziness. Also be sure to sit in the courtyard as literally every inch of your meal will be insta-worthy. 

2. Restoration Hardware 

Believe it or not one of Tampa's newest gems is the massive Restoration Hardware at International Plaza. The four store interior design gallery is one of the most inspirational places to go if your looking to glam up your home ( or take a few pics. ) The best spot to get some real glamorous shots = the rooftop. Its adorn with chandeliers and beautiful set ups making it a bloggers heaven. Be sure to hit this spot if you're looking to spruce up your feed.

3. Tampa Theater 

Notably my favorite building in all of Tampa, historic Tampa Theater. An old school extremely beautiful building that boosts the iconic "Tampa" sign. This theater is as instagramable as it is beautiful. Weather your taking pictures inside or out, it is equally as stunning. I had the privilege of seeing one of my favorite movies of all time, Breakfast at Tiffany's here at the theater and let me tell you it was like stepping back into time. The only problem with seeing iconic movies at an iconic theater, is well...everyone loves an iconic movie shown at an iconic theater. Basically, the lines are extremely long and masses of people come to see showings like Breakfast At Tiffany's, But if you can some how avoid the crowds, or go on a day where there isn't a showing this theater is generally pretty quite and easy to take photos of. 

4. The Tampa Museum of Art

Art with a view. If your looking for some creative inspiration here is your stop. The Tampa Museum of Art is a stunning contemporary museum right in the heart of downtown Tampa. The inside of the building itself is cool and modern enough to consider itself art. Be sure to view some of the sculpters on the second story deck as the view of the river as well as UT is incredible. Also be sure to check out any of the events ( new ones pop up every weekend ) in Curtis Hixon park, which is just outside the doors of the museum. 

5. Scenic Downtown

While I could have put tons of other Instagram worthy places in the top 5 spot, it didn't feel right not to mention our scenic downtown as one to check out. If you really want a great view of town, check out the water side park at the University Of Tampa. Once your in the park walk all the way down to the edge of the water, and look up. Its one of the most stunning views of Tampa and the river as a whole. The park is free to go to and while your there be sure to check out the Henry B Plant museum inside the UT campus. Another great view is the view from Curtis Hixon right across the river. Definitely worth checking out. 

Hope you all enjoyed! Be sure to tag me on Instagram @officialsavvyj if you go to any of these stops! Let me know in the comments you're favorite instagramable location and it just may end up in a future article. ;) xo
