Use Orbitz.com to book one of the many flights to Tampa International Airport, the major airport serving the Tampa-St. Petersburg area. Most major domestic and international airlines fly in and out of the Tampa airport, which is located at 4100 George J Bean Parkway, roughly eight miles northwest of the downtown Tampa area.
There are several options for ground transportation from the Tampa airport. Pick up the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit bus (HART) near the red baggage claim area, or grab a taxi or share-a-ride van at the ground transportation quadrants located in each corner of the baggage claim area. Most cab companies charge a $2 fee plus $2.25 for each mile, with a minimum $15 charge for each trip. For the ultimate mobility during your stay, use Orbitz.com to add a rental car to your travel package.
Tampa has a relatively mild climate. Winter temperatures rarely drop below 55 degrees Fahrenheit, and summer temperatures top out at around 90 degrees. Dress for summer, but bring a light jacket for those cool nights and a waterproof slicker for the inevitable afternoon storms.
To get the most out of your Tampa trip, attend a few of the city's outdoor festivals and celebrations. Each Saturday evening throughout the summer, you can attend Saturday Sunsets on the Trail at Treasure Island or the Holmes Beach Concerts in the Park series. The Fun 'N Sun festival and the annual Tampa-Hillsborough Storytelling Festival run through the spring, and Art in the Park and the Bridge Street Market are weekly events. Enjoy your Tampa vacation, and don't forget to use Orbtiz.com to book cheap flights to Tampa for your next trip.
