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.

  • 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.

Tampa Bay may test futuristic "smart road" system

In the coming months, downtown Tampa may be host to testing a system of "smart roads." Smart roads have technology to speak to cars using "connected vehicle technology," which can let a vehicle know that a car up ahead is losing control, or warn a driver about a pedestrian crossing the street or an oncoming wrong-way driver. If the program is approved, smart roads capable of turning lights red and green to dynamically control traffic flow will be rolled out in the Channel District.
