Airport Car Rental
The largest metropolis on the west coast of Florida, Tampa may not be as popular a destination as Miami or Orlando, but can still generate plenty of excitement. From notable landmarks and fun nightlife to access to beautiful beaches and nature, it has plenty to keep a traveler entertained. These are three of the most interesting attractions in and around it:
- The Florida Aquarium. One of the largest of its kind in the United States, The Florida Aquarium is also one of the most popular tourist attractions in Tampa. The aquarium is home to some 7,000 marine animal and plant species from around the world and lists leafy sea dragons, bonnethead sharks, and giant pacific octopuses among its most famous inhabitants. There are also fascinating exhibitions on native Florida coral reef research and sea turtle and other wildlife conservation.
- Busch Gardens. With more than four million visitors each year, the Busch Gardens theme park is definitely one of the most emblematic points of interest in Tampa. With roller coasters, drop towers, and the next-door Adventure Island water park, it arguably packs in more excitement than any other attraction in the city. Visit the gardens’ official website to learn more.
- Museum of Science and Industry. An interactive institution that’s another beloved attraction for families, the MOSI is, for many, the most interesting museum in Tampa. It includes a planetarium, a simulated moon base, a ropes course (not for those afraid of heights), and a number of other permanent exhibitions dedicated to science and discovery.

If approaching the airport from Tampa on I-275 you will likewise want to exit onto Westshore Blvd. and take a right. There will be a Shell station on your left. Continue on Westshore Blvd. afterwards and look at Google Maps to see how to get to the Rental Car Center.
Finally, if you are approaching from Tampa along W. Kennedy Blvd., you will pass multiple gas stations on your way.
