Where are you traveling from? What are the dates you are targeting or how long do you plan to be in the area? Have you been to or are you interested in experiencing any of the Orlando parks while you're in Central Florida?
Tampa has Busch Gardens and Adventure Island going for it along with Hard Rock Casino if that's your kind of thing. St. Petersburg has lots of artsier options like the Dali Museum and the Chihuly Collection. If you're willing to venture outside of Tampa area, you have access to the rest of the Central Florida attractions including Disney (four parks, two water parks, Disney Springs), Universal (two parks, a water park and CityWalk), SeaWorld (one park, one water park and an all-inclusive style experience park that is unique), Fun Spot (not my top recommendation but the coasters at each location are solid enough that it may be worth a try), International Drive and a ton more... Your horizons will definitely be broadened if you go beyond Tampa.
Even further, you could visit Kennedy Space Center in only a 2.5 hour drive, which seeing the Space Shuttle Atlantis exhibit is worth the drive alone.
If you were to stick to Tampa, then I recommend considering one of Busch Gardens' animal tours... The Serengeti Safari is something I highly recommend!
Depending on the time you're planning to be in town, Howl-O-Scream could be taking place at Busch Gardens, but again if you're willing to step out of Tampa, there's Halloween Horror Nights, the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival and Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party just a short drive away!
