Whether traveling for fun or business, a trip from the Midwest to the Sunshine State is fast and easy. From O'Hare International Airport, the Midwest's busiest travel hub, you're just a short flight to the blue skies and beautiful beaches of Florida.
Once you arrive at Tampa International Airport, the convenience of a rented car can take you the last leg of your journey to downtown Tampa. After, you’ll be able to soak in the beauty of Busch Gardens and Lowry Park Zoo, or enjoy the Sunshine Skyway.
When navigating a rental car out of the airport, easily accessible Interstate 275 runs north and south to both Tampa and St. Petersburg. Visitors staying close to the airport can take a quick trip to the nearby International Plaza to enjoy extensive shopping and dining options like The Capital Grille, or you can drive to Clearwater for some time on the beach.
After less than three hours in the air from Chicago's O'Hare, ORD, to Tampa International Airport, TPA, the nightlife and cultural experiences of Tampa are a mere 20 minutes away by car. Over a dozen rental car companies are readily available at the airport, and can be found across the walkways in both the Red and the Blue baggage claim areas.
