Sea World, Discovery Cove and Busch Gardens

Okay, we'll be honest: Sea World is a great place to visit but not so much for the wildlife and shows, which after the whale tragedy a few years ago have become a pale and slightly dull shadow of their former selves, regardless of your ethical attitude to them. These days go to Sea World for the standing exhibits and especially the rides - SW has some truly terrific roller coasters. Discovery Cove is a wonderful place to relax and swim, though a little expensive (and you need to book ahead at peak holiday times), while Busch Gardens has always been our favourite of the three: a large zoo-park, wonderful roller coasters, shows, children's area, and a far more relaxed feel than the others - even if it is an (easy) hour's drive away, north of Tampa.
