Central Avenue Walking Tour

June 7 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

$20

Embark on a journey through Tampa’s historic Central Avenue district, once celebrated as the “Harlem of the South.” Explore the rich narrative of this African-American community from the 1890s through the 1960s, with landmarks including St. James Church and Perry Harvey Sr Park. Join our walking tours on select Fridays at 10 a.m. Discover Central Avenue, not just as a neighborhood but as a vibrant, united community with a history that transcends time.

Each 90-minute walk is led by a History Center-trained docent and is limited to 25 people to ensure an intimate and informative experience. Participants will walk approximately one mile along public sidewalks and brick streets. Please be sure to wear comfortable shoes and attire for walking outside. Guests might also want to bring bottled water on the tour. The meeting point for the start of each tour will be emailed to each ticket holder. History Center members save 20% on walking tour tickets.
