If you live close enough to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay that you can drive there but far enough away that driving to & from Busch Gardens would take too much time away from fun in the park, then you may want to stay at a hotel.
However, this does add onto the cost of your trip, especially since tickets to Busch Gardens aren’t exactly cheap.
But one way around this would be to stay at the Econo Lodge Busch Gardens.
Located on East Busch Gardens Boulevard, it is within walking distance of Busch Gardens, so right there it can save you money on parking at the park.
Additionally, Econo Lodge’s prices for a family of four can often start around $66 a night with the low prices offered on their website.
And so that means the highest expense of your trip would be the cost of tickets – but you can save money there by buying Busch Gardens tickets online.
So by staying at an Econo Lodge for a cheap rate, not having to pay for parking & buying discounted online tickets, you can make a trip to Busch Gardens much more affordable!
