Also known as the Tampa Bay area, this is an ideal gateway to access Florida’s gorgeous gulf coast beaches, providing Caribbean-like climate and sensational sunsets. Clearwater and St. Pete boast some of the best beaches in the USA, with both featuring in TripAdvisor's Top 25 Beaches in the USA. These barrier-island spots make the perfect backdrop for a tranquil escape with powdery white sand and crystal clear turquoise waters.
In the city of Tampa itself, the historic waterside metropolis is brimming with fantastic places to eat and cultural hot spots. Looking for thrills? Tampa is just over an hour away from Orlando's biggest and best theme parks.
