Tampa is a wonderful beach city to visit whether you are traveling there for leisure or business. Having reliable transportation makes your visit more pleasurable and allows you make your own sightseeing schedule. After picking up your rental car at Tampa International Airport (TPA), you might want to take a fishing charter, or play golf at one of the numerous courses in the area.
Adventure Island and Big Cat Rescue are popular attractions, along with Busch Gardens and the Lowry Park Zoo. For lively nightlife, try Ybor City’s East 7th Avenue from 20th Street to 15th Street. It’s loaded with places to dine and exciting live music venues, try Gaspar’s Grotto for a bite to eat.
If you’re on a beach quest, you can check out Fort DeSoto Park, Clearwater Beach or Caladesi Island State Park for fun in the sun. As a day trip, Tampa is only an hour and a half from Orlando, so you may want to take the opportunity to visit the world famous Disney World, Universal Orlando and Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
It takes about four hours and 45 minutes to fly from Los Angeles International Airport (LAX) to Tampa International Airport (TPA) on a direct route. Remember that Tampa is in the Eastern time zone, so you may want to get some rest during your flight to avoid jet lag.
