Soak up the sun with flights to Tampa

Enjoy a sunny vacation with flights to Tampa, Florida! With year-round warm temperatures, flights to Tampa are popular options for sun-worshippers, culture hounds, and adventure seekers alike. Fine dining on the waterfront or rooftop cocktails make for romantic nights out on the town, while the nightlife and art scene in the Ybor City neighbourhood will keep you entertained all night long.

Visitors planning to jump on a cruise ship after arriving on flights to Tampa can easily access Port Tampa Bay, where four cruise operators service multi-day cruise itineraries just a 22-minute drive from the airport. Carnival, Celebrity Cruises, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Lines (NGL) operate trips around the Caribbean and transatlantic destinations, including Spain.

Speaking of Spain – the United States purchased the Florida area from Spain in 1821. Forts and trading posts were established and the small, remote fishing village near Tampa Bay started to grow. As useful natural resources were discovered in the area, the railroad was expanded to connect Florida to the North. Ybor City was founded, and the local economy was prospering by the 1900s.

Tampa has continued to thrive and is today known as a tourist destination due to its vibrant culture, sunshine and sandy beaches. Board a flight to Tampa to experience the west coast of Florida!

Things to do in Tampa

If you're taking a flight to Tampa, you have to add Busch Gardens to your travel itinerary. Just a 20-minute drive from downtown in North Tampa, Busch Gardens Tampa theme park features African-themed areas, rides and attractions. Take a safari in the 65-acre Serengeti Plain in an open-air vehicle to get up close and personal with giraffes, hippos, orangutans, gorillas, elephants, rhinos, kangaroos and sloths. Ride world-class rollercoasters, such as the world's fastest and steepest hybrid rollercoaster: Iron Gwazi, which plunges riders 122 km per hour from a 206-foot-tall peak, dropping at a 91-degree angle. Another coaster, Sheikra, also features a 200 ft drop at the same steep angle, while Montu's inverted coaster will be sure to turn your world upside down.

Not far from Busch Gardens, and also owned and operated by SeaWorld Parks, is Adventure Island. Featuring a lazy river and wave pool, as well as a number of exhilarating water slides and rides, Adventure Island is a great spot to get some respite from the heat.

Just a 10-minute drive north from downtown, Zoo Tampa at Lowry Park is home to over 1,300 animals in a stunning tropical setting. Make new friends by touching a tortoise, feeding a giraffe, petting giant stingrays, and learning at the manatee education centre.

If you plan on hitting all of the above major hotspots when you fly to Tampa, consider getting the Tampa CityPASS for discounts at all of the top Tampa attractions.

Visitors on Tampa flights looking to embrace the sand and sea can find what they're looking for at one of many Tampa beaches.

East Tampa Beach, located near the Godfrey Hotel, is a great spot for both sunbathing during the day and stargazing at night. Enjoy the sunset over East Tampa Beach from rooftop bars with craft cocktails, or head to a waterfront restaurant for spectacular views and fresh seafood.

Ben T. Davis Beach, located near East Tampa Beach and 15 minutes from downtown, is the largest public beach in the area and easily one of the most popular spots to soak in some sun. The narrow white sandy beach is lined with palm trees and connected to hiking trails. Play volleyball, sunbathe and then catch the sunset for the perfect way to end a day at the beach.

While not specifically a Tampa beach, Clearwater Beach on the Gulf Coast is a 45-minute drive from downtown Tampa and has been consistently rated as the best beach in the U.S. by several publications. On a barrier island in Pinellas County, Clearwater Beach is a great spot to rent cabanas and spend a full day on the beach or exploring the nearby town of Clearwater. Visitors looking to get active on the water can also rent jet skis, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, or even go parasailing. Enjoy beachfront dining and then when the sun starts to set, head to Pier 60 for one of their nightly sunset celebrations. Every night, the 4-hour celebrations (2 hours before sunset and 2 hours after) feature street performers such as stilt walkers, fire eaters, magicians, and dancers — as well as artisans selling their wares at stalls.

When you fly to Tampa, you'll see that the city has a flourishing arts scene, from street art murals throughout the city to museums and art galleries in the downtown core. Culture-seekers looking to take in a show or learn about the history of the area will not be disappointed.

Learn something new at the Tampa Bay History Center, which has three floors highlighting 12,000 years of Florida history. From the first tumultuous encounters with the Tocobaga to conquistadors and pirates, Florida's Cuban cigar history, and pioneer ranchers, visitors can gain a deeper understanding of the founding of Tampa and Florida as a whole.

Across the river is the Henry B. Plant Museum, once the grand Tampa Bay Hotel built in the 1800s. Today, visitors on flights to Tampa are invited to walk back in time and surround themselves with the opulent furnishings. Learn about how the hotel influenced the beginning of Florida's tourism industry from the start of the Victorian Era by walking through the home's original European and Asian furnishings.

Ybor City

Ybor City

Explore a charming historic district after your flight to Tampa. Pronounced “E-bore”, Ybor City in Tampa was founded in 1886 after the Tampa Board of Trade convinced Vicente Martinez Ybor to move his cigar manufacturing factories and operations to Tampa from Key West.

To this day, visitors to Ybor City, just east of Downtown Tampa, will feel like they are stepping back in time and into a Cuban community. The narrow streets and wrought-iron balconies where shopkeepers open their storefronts to entice passersby were famous for cigar factories and home to immigrants from Cuba, Spain, Italy and Germany.

The historic district can be found on palm tree lined 7th Avenue, which was once the cigar capital of the world. Factories surrounded by small homes for the factory workers can still be found in Ybor City, and small establishments like King Corona continue to hand-roll cigars in-house, while offering visitors a truly Cuban experience complete with coffee or fine wine.

While there were once over 150 factories making and shipping 500 million cigars a year, the last surviving working cigar factory in Ybor City is the J.C. Newman Cigar Company. Guests to the factory can watch cigars being made on hand-operated machines, and tour the three-floor museum to learn about the history of cigar making and how Ybor City helped Florida's economy grow into what it is today.

The Ybor City Museum features the history of the factory workers and you can tour a fully-restored casita. Exploring the house gives insight into how the community working in these cigar factories lived and interacted. As you walk around the area near the museum, you might notice wild chickens and roosters happily roaming around. This is because a city ordinance makes Tampa a bird sanctuary for these wild street chickens, but it also lends to the charm and history of Ybor City.

When you browse around the boutique stores and vintage shops after your Tampa flight, you might feel like you've left Florida for another country. Jose Marti Park is 0.14 hectares of official Cuban land, so a visit to the park is a visit to Cuba! Visiting Cuba, however, wouldn't be the same without sampling some of their food. La Segunda Bakery is the largest baker of Cuban bread, a crispy and hearty loaf of bread that was invented right in Ybor City. Order it alongside a cafe con leche, but save room for a Cuban sandwich (also invented in Ybor City) at Columbia Restaurant, Florida's oldest restaurant. It's also the oldest and largest Spanish restaurant in the country; Columbia Restaurant delights their guests with not only their menu, but flamenco dancers gracing their floors six nights a week.

Ybor City is not all history though – there's a great nightlife scene here too. Head to one of the many clubs playing house, reggae and hip-hop or catch a show at the Ritz Ybor where the biggest names in music come to perform in Tampa.

Head to the Straz Center for Performing Arts for a show. The venue has five theatres featuring broadway performances, opera, ballet and concerts.
