Tampa Sunshine Skyway Bridge

Traffic Information

The city is served by five main highways that run from either north to south or east to west. Interstate 275 covers the Tampa Bay area and runs right through the city center. When wanting to reach some of the best beaches in the area you can take the I-275 to destination like St. Petersburg and then drive over the Tampa Bay via the scenic Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the longest, cable-stayed concrete bridge in the world. The I-4 travels northeast out of Tampa bringing you to Orlando. Be aware many of the city's expressways are toll roads so it's well worth considering adding our Express Toll Service to your car rental in Tampa.

Sixt Tips

Tampa is situated on Tampa Bay close to some of the best beach resorts on the Gulf of Mexico. The city is laid out in an easy to navigate grid pattern and having a vehicle is definitely one the best ways to get around. A car rental in Tampa enables you to make the most of your stay whether it's for a weekend or longer. Visit the many attractions, tee off on world class greens or spend days relaxing on pristine sandy beaches like Clearwater.
