When you fly from LaGuradia Airport (LGA) to Tampa International Airport (TPA), you switch the fast-paced lifestyle of New York City, for a tranquil experience on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Known as the "Big Guava," Tampa is a major resort destination that also has booming financial, media and high-tech industries. Both Hillsborough Bay and Tampa Bay accommodate some of the busiest cruise ship routes in the Sunshine State.
After you pick up a rental car at TPA, merge on Interstate-275 to drive directly to neighboring cities such as St. Petersburg and Clearwater. The TECO Line Streetcar System offers a fun way to navigate the core of Tampa. Situated along the waterfront Channel District, the Florida Aquarium invites visitors to explore beautiful species of local fish, as well as other marine life from the Gulf of Mexico.
If you're an avid sports fanatic, buy tickets to Raymond James Stadium, Tropicana Field, or Amalie Arena. To show your appreciation for classical music, reserve a seat at The David A. Straz Jr. Center for the Performing Arts.
A direct flight between LaGuardia Airport (LGA) and Tampa International Airport (TPA) takes just under three hours to complete. To satisfy your cravings while in Tampa, try some Caribbean and Central American cuisine, or some locally-caught seafood along with authentic spicy Rum.
