The largest airport in Oregon, Portland International (PDX) is close to both I-5 and I-205. The only available public transportation option to the airport is the light rail's MAX Red Line. Few nonstop flights are available to Tampa International (TPA), but typical flight times are between seven and eight hours with stopovers. Once you reach Tampa, ground transportation is available at the west end of the baggage claim area, and you can reach central Tampa via 589 or 92.
Tampa is best known for its coasts; from the beach town of Clearwater Park to the nature preserves at Caladesi Island State Park. Visitors who kayak in the rivers of Tampa Bay may spot Florida wildlife, like manatees, dolphins and alligators, and attractions like the Florida Aquarium and the Big Cat Rescue let you get even closer to wild creatures.
For a different sort of wild time, Busch Gardens combines a zoo and an amusement park into one attraction. Listed as one of the ten best theaters in the world, Tampa Theatre shows historic and independent movies if you prefer indoor entertainment.
Tampa's temperatures are warm, even in winter, and days are usually sunny. The location is busiest in winter, when northern tourists seek warm weather, and summer, when school is out. Consider a fall visit to avoid crowds. Hotels range from luxury resorts to inexpensive chains, so budget accordingly.
