Car hire in Tampa, which you can arrange at Tampa International Airport (TPA), is an essential way to get around the city and the many resorts and theme parks of west Florida that surround it.
Tampa, the largest city in Florida, is an excellent base from which to explore the nearby cities of St Petersburg and its popular tourist attraction the Pier, as well as Clearwater with its white sandy beaches, clear waters and sunshine. The world-famous white sandy beaches don't stop there though. Sarasota and Naples also offer the ultimate in sun, sea and sand, while a 100-mile drive from Tampa is the serene seclusion of Port Charlotte.
One of the most popular places in Florida, Naples is just a minute away from the incredibly beautiful Everglades and the Big Cypress National Preserve, the 729,000 acre area set aside for conservation and protection of the natural flora and fauna of the Florida Everglades. Just south of Naples is Marco Island, the northernmost point of the picturesque Ten Thousand Islands.
A two-hour drive from Tampa is Orlando, the destination of choice for fans of theme parks and shopping. You will also find some very laid-back coastal areas here. Near to Tampa is the historic Palm Harbour. Tampa is a fantastic base from which to explore but while in the city itself you can do some shopping in the International Plaza Mall or Westshore Plaza Mall before visiting the city's old historic quarter and its History Centre.
Tampa is also the home of the Busch Gardens amusement park with its thrilling rides and attractions and Lowry Park Zoo, as well as the Glazer Children's Museum.
Tampa car hire is essential if you want to both appreciate the city, its bay and the surrounding attractions of Florida.
