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 destinations 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.

Sightseeing Destinations

Busch Gardens

Busch Gardens is one of Tampa's most popular attractions. Take a ride on the famous Montu roller coaster or see a wide variety of exotic birds and animals in the amazing garden setting. This 19th century, African themed park is within easy reach of downtown Tampa.

Clearwater Beach

Clearwater is just a short drive from Tampa on Route 60 over the scenic Memorial Causeway Bridge. Miles of white sand and the warm, clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico have earned Clearwater Beach its place at the top of the list of the state's best beaches. You'll also find water sports, fishing and sailing and a nightly gathering of musicians and entertainers at Pier 60, which makes sunset a spectacular event.

Ybor City

Tampa was once the cigar capital of Florida and its cultural and industrial past is celebrated in the Ybor City found north of Channelside and northeast of the Downtown District. Visit the Ybor City Cigar Museum or the Ybor City State Museum before exploring the restaurants and nightclubs that have made it one of the region's most popular entertainment hubs.

What to Do in Tampa in Winter 2020

Winter weather here is mild but it perhaps a bit cool to hit the beach. Luckily there are several things to do in the sunshine. Temperatures can be in the 70s during the day but drop to the 50s at night. Because it's on the water, you can find a lot of activities year-round. If the water temperatures are cold enough, you can see manatees from the Tampa Electric Manatee Viewing Center. Or head to the Florida Aquarium where you are assured to see creatures from the sea. Golfers can head to the TPC Tampa Bay to play around when it is not so hot. Why not rent a convertible to get as much sun as possible during your trip?
