Planning a holiday in Tampa? You can find cheap flights to Tampa year-round to Tampa International Airport (TPA). The city's second airport, Petersburg-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) is another choice, albeit much small and caters mostly to domestic and charter airlines. Most all of America's major airlines connect Tampa to London and the UK.
The weather in Tampa is phenomenal. The Gulf Stream keeps the winters very mild. From spring to fall, it's pretty much beach weather every day, great for outdoor activities and sports.

Tampa is known for its world-class attractions like Busch Gardens and aquariums not to mention that the country's best beaches on the east coast are just a short ride away with a Tampa rental car. Are you ready for your Florida adventure?
Busch Gardens: By far the most popular attraction in Tampa, it's an amusement park and zoo. There are roller coasters, dolphin shows, magic shows, ice skating, parks and endless attractions and themed displays.
Florida Aquarium: This is a great place if you're travelling with your kids in tow. The permanent exhibition follows the life of a drop of rain in a swamp all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. Fascinating.
Ybor: Ybor is a multicultural district north of downtown with excellent tourist sights by day and great nightclubs and restaurants by night. Visit the Ybor Cigar Museum, take the Ybor ArtWalk or visit the Saturday marketplace for souvenirs.
