Airport Car Rental
Tampa Airport is the main gateway to the Tamp Bay area and serves more than 20 million passengers a year. Given that the area is spread out, you will definitely need a rental car unless planning to only stay in downtown Tampa.
An interesting fact is that the world’s first commercial passenger flights took place at Tampa Airport. In 1914, a heavier-than-air flying boat made its first scheduled flight from Tampa to St. Petersburg, Florida.
