Settler’s Rest RV Resort is only 25 miles from Tampa and 60 miles from Orlando, which makes it a convenient place for launching day trips to major attractions. We suggest putting the Lowry Park Zoo and SeaWorld on your sightseeing list.

Lowry Park Zoo

With one million visitors each year, the Lowry Park Zoo is one of the most popular zoos in the southeastern states. It’s home to 1,300 animals and is known for its beautiful settings. You can expect unforgettable connections such as feeding a giraffe, touching a tortoise and getting near an Indian rhino. The attraction also includes rides and educational shows.

Hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. The address is 1101 W. Sligh Avenue in Tampa.


Although Orlando has the famous attractions of Disney World and Epcot, it also offers other major attractions that may not be quite as well known. One such place is SeaWorld, an extraordinary park with shows, rides and animal encounters. The shows range from educational productions about killer whales to lighthearted performances involving sea lions; while the rides vary from thrilling roller coasters to tranquil paddleboats. Best of all, the animal encounters provide an exploration of the mysteries and wonders of the creatures of the sea.

Hours are from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday through Friday and from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. Single-park tickets start at $79.99 and Multi-park tickets start at $59.99/park. The address is 7007 Sea World Drive in Orlando.
