When you have your car keys getting into the city centre takes just ten minutes on the Interstate-275.
Tampa is an exciting mix of old and new architecture which means that road priorities are sometimes changed to allow for new developments. However, your Sat Nav will help you navigate these without getting lost. As in any large city morning and evening rush hours should be avoided if possible. Tampa has good road connections to the rest of Florida so heading off for days out is easy whether you choose the fast interstate highways or more relaxed coastal and country roads.
Tampa has a generous amount of parking spaces either in secured garages or metered street zones. Most tourist attractions and large shopping malls also have their own parking facilities. If you wish, payment can generally be made by smartphone.
As you drive around Tampa in your car hire you will discover that it is split into three distinct districts, Downtown Tampa, North Tampa and Ybor City, each with their own unique characteristics. In Downtown Tampa you have Davis and Harbour Islands with their beautiful waterfront and the Tampa Museum of Art. When you get to North Tampa, a visit to Lowry Zoo, one of the best-rated in the United States is a must. Make sure to pay a visit to its Manatee Hospital. The Museum of Science and Industry is also here, its hands-on displays guarantee a fun day out for all ages. Ybor City is a cosmopolitan spot with street markets and artists along with a cigar factory and museum. To get the most out of this National Historic Landmark District hop on one of its famous vintage streetcars.
