Looking for indoor play areas for kids in Tampa Bay to avoid Florida’s unpredictable weather? I am sharing over 30 places that are perfect for kids of all ages. Indoor play provides children with the opportunity to interact with their friends and family in a more controlled environment. It also provides children with the ability to socialize, work on their gross motor skills, remain active and embrace their imagination. I hope this guide helps you find a new favorite place to escape the heat or rain with your family.

Please note: Most of these indoor play areas require socks and adult supervision. Visit their website for more information.
