Fly from Miami to Tampa

If you're in Miami and looking to experience another aspect of Floridian culture, then catch a flight to Tampa, otherwise known as the Big Guava. When you fly from Miami to Tampa, your flight will only last less than an hour, so you won't have to wait long. You can reach Miami International Airport (MIA) by driving along the 836 or by utilizing a public bus route that leads to the airport.

Attractions

If you're looking for a thrill, head over to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, an animal-themed amusement park located right in the city. To get a look at some wildlife, there's the option of visiting the Lowry Park Zoo, which is known for its family-friendliness. The ginormous Florida Aquarium, which is 250,000 thousand square feet, offers you the chance to view a wide variety of marine life. The Museum of Science and Industry is a great destination for those looking to learn, as is the Henry B. Plant Museum, which features beautiful European works and pieces from the Gilded Age.

Hints and tips

Tampa's climate is subtropical, which means that visitors should expect a lot of humidity. Temperatures in Tampa rarely dip below 52 degrees, even in winter. When you fly from Miami to Tampa, the best ways to get around the city are by bus or by cab, but there are also plenty of rental options. Tampa is home to many large flea markets, and it is advisable that avid shoppers stop by at least one of them during their trip.
