Well that depends on where you’re planning to head. Downtown Tampa, about 5 miles from Tampa, FL Airport (TPA-Tampa Intl.), can be a bit tricky to drive in. Make things easy by choosing something compact, fuel-efficient, and a breeze to handle. Take into consideration that Tampa is also a jumping off point for some of the coral reefs in Hillsborough County. If your trip is more about cruising down highways, you may want something with a bit more trunk space and room to move. What about a full-size car or a standard SUV?
