Hire a car in Tampa
Beyond its business façade, Tampa is a hub of tropical attractions.
Despite being the largest city on Florida’s West Coast, it is often dwarfed by Miami and Orlando as the state’s most admirable tourist hotspots. Yet, you’ll find a lively collection of nightclubs with a dash of Hispanic vibes as well as theme parks here too. Tampa’s beaches are among some of Florida’s best and there are plenty of holiday resorts for those seeking some R&R.
Plus, with year round sunshine its no wonder the city attracts tourists from the snowy north. Grab your rental and head into Florida’s iconic swamplands or steer your wheels down the Gulf Coast.
Sights to see
Tampa manages to combine historic old districts, a lively bar scene and some wonderful beach retreats and all with a refreshing lack of hectic bustle. There’s plenty to do in and around Tampa City. The Florida Aquarium has an amazing selection of exhibits, including a mangrove swamp habitat and an incredible coral reef teeming with colourful fish and sea life. The recently renovated Ybor City is a fascinating place to explore. Once the Cuban cigar making capital of America, it’s now filled with relics and artefacts from the early 20th Century as well as some wonderful cigar shops selling local specialities. The city is also blessed with an abundance of cultural attractions. The Museum of Science and Industry is full of hand-on exhibits including a giant game of pinball. It makes for a great family day out. The Tampa Museum of Art is more sedate, but just as absorbing, featuring a collection of work from local and international artists.
