VPKayakSUP.Ed CaumPasco County is an outdoor lover’s paradise that offers great ecotourism and an outdoor adventure alternative to the typical theme-park experience. The area boasts 20 miles of shoreline to the west, hilly terrain to the east and more than 100,000 acres of pristine wilderness to explore in between. Making your adventure possibilities, endless!


Kayak/SUP: Get outside and enjoy what the Nature Coast has to offer, some of the best ways to explore Pasco County’s natural beauty is on the water. Visit one of our many paddle sport rental facilities and see for yourself. Paddle through 4,000 acres of salt springs or endless miles of rivers and estuaries. Take your time as you navigate the waterways and trails, observe wildlife or enjoy a relaxing picnic under a moss-draped oak.


Fish: Fish the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico off of over 20 miles of coastline. Our shallow waters and many inlets make it a flats fishing haven. Find what the locals refer to as “the hole” and you’ll find dinner! Visit www.MyFWC.com for complete details of fish limits, seasons and sizes.


Antique Shopping: Experience the best antique shops in central Florida. Travel back in time as you visit unique shops and upscale boutiques housed in early 20th century cottages in Downtown Dade City and New Port Richey. Enjoy Southern Hospitality and antique shopping opportunities all within a short walking distance of each other. From “old classics” to “shabby-chic,” you’ll find what you’re looking for!


Tampa Premium Outlets: Conveniently located right off Interstate 75 and State Road 56, Tampa Premium Outlets is anchored by Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH. Guests will enjoy over 110 of the best retail shops in Tampa Bay. While you’re in the area, stop by the Shops at Wiregrass, or the national retailers and entertainment options at The Grove in Wesley Chapel. Destination shopping awaits you!


Dade City Wild Things: Take an adventure with a guide that brings you closer than ever to some magnificent animals. Add on amazing personal encounters, like swimming with tiger cubs, one-on-one’s with monkeys and gators, big cat feedings and more.
