Tampa Off The Beaten Path: 123 reviews and 192 photos
At the University of Tampa, there are numerous historic sites, some obvious--such as the Tampa Bay Hotel, others well hidden--like the spot where Babe Ruth hit his longest home run. One of the more obvious locations sits right along Kennedy Boulevard: the Spanish American War Memorial. This cannon was actually an 8-inch coastal defense gun removed from Fort Dade on nearby Egmont Key. The gun points toward Cuba, and marks one of the locations from which the Cuban invasion was planned.
The concrete base of the gun is marked with famous names and phrases like Admiral Dewey, Remember the Maine, and the Rough Riders.
