The flight into Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (SEA) from Tampa is a long trip, but you can relax while navigating the SEA airport, before heading into Seattle with your rental car. Despite Seattle's famous rush hour traffic, you should find driving in Seattle is much easier than many other American cities.
Parking is easy to find during the week, such as at the landmark Pike Place Market, which has two parking areas, one down by the Market and a garage just up the street. Start exploring Seattle from this central location and you can walk to restaurants like Toulouse Petit, or even just stroll along Elliot Bay.
There's plenty to do in Seattle whether you’re here for business or leisure, from exploring several waterfronts around Lake Union, Lake Washington and Elliot Bay, to visiting museums such as the Seattle Art Museum, or the interactive science exhibits in the Pacific Science Center. After you drive to the Pacific Science Center, you can easily visit the Space Needle just a few steps away. Get in more wildlife watching by visiting the Seattle Aquarium and Woodland Park Zoo with the kids.
The in-air flight time between Tampa International Airport (TPA) and Seattle is slightly over five and a half hours. Gate to gate time could be much longer however, as flights are rarely nonstop.
