Local Attractions

Locally, Zephyrhills is known for farm-fresh produce like oranges and kumquats. It's also a popular skydiving site, thanks to flat terrain and stable, sunny weather. And with the area's pure freshwater springs, it's no surprise that Zephyrhills Brewing Company is renowned for beer.

Tampa, only 30 miles west, has much to enjoy. Favorite attractions include Adventure Island, Busch Gardens, Lowry Park Zoo, Ybor City, and The Florida Aquarium. Sports enthusiasts can also attend home games of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Lightning, and Rays.

Just a little further away are other fine parts of the state. The famous theme park Legoland is only 43 miles away in Winter Haven. In addition, Orlando, a 77-mile drive from Sweetwater, has famous attractions that are well worth the trip. These include SeaWorld, Walt Disney World, and Universal Orlando, as well as world-class shopping.
