Fetch your luggage, walk out of St. Petersburg, FL Airport (PIE-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Intl.), and pick up your rental car. Which one you climb into depends on where you’ll be going. If you’ll be spending a good deal of time driving in downtown Clearwater, around 4 miles from the terminal, opt for something zippy and small. A compact car with good maneuverability will be perfect for navigating those busy city streets. But with almost endless things to see, like the stunning coral reefs of the region, there’s a good chance you’ll rack up those miles. A larger vehicle, like a full-size car or an SUV, will make lengthier road trips a joy.
