Tampa and St. Petersburg - The bay cities of Florida with stunning beaches

Though they lack a world-renowned theme park like Orlando, the cities of Tampa and St. Petersburg, both situated around the Tampa Bay, use their attractive beaches and regularly warm weather to draw in tourists each year. The area is the second largest metropolitan statistical area in Florida by population.

Major highways around the bay

  • I-75, runs north-south along the east side of the bay and passes along the east side of Tampa.
  • I-4, which goes from the heart of Tampa eastward towards Lakeland and Orlando.
  • I-275, cuts through the center of Tampa, crosses Old Tampa Bay, and passes through St. Petersburg.
