Now that we have our freedom again, The Joyride guides decided we needed a cheerful adventure full of bright colors, and unusual art, along with a delicious meal and some shopping therapy in historic Kenwood. Our adventure begins with breakfast on the bus as we head north via the Sunshine Skyway bridge for a bird’s eye view of Tampa Bay to Whimzeyland and Sunken Gardens.

We will make a quick stop at quirky Whimzeyland who Atlas Obscura called a "psychedelic explosion of art and color.

*due to closures, not all tours will stop at Whimzeyland

Next is Florida's original roadside attraction - Sunken Gardens. Take a stroll under a hundred year old tropical canopy filled with unusual flora and fauna.  One Joyrider called it a mix of Florida museum and tropical paradise!

On to St. Petersburg’s art district where your Joyride ticket will gain entrance to the famous Dale Chihuly art glass collection and Morean Art Center. The Chihully makes you feel like you are a part of the theater experience.  Bring your earbuds as there is a guided docent tour you can access via your phone as well as glass blowing demonstrations every hour. You are on your own for lunch in the Kenwood art district. Kenwood is a wonderful place to lunch, shop and stroll through the amazing murals. Your Joyride guide will pass out restaurant and shopping recommendations on bus.
