Feel the need for some retail therapy? You can find just about everything you want at TPA. Prepare for your flight with magazines, water, and headphones or buy gifts for folks back home from merchants selling uniquely Tampa goods. No room in your bag to hold all your new finds? Ship them home from TPA’s UPS Store.
If you have a little extra time before your flight, spend it viewing the airport’s permanent and rotating art exhibits. However long you have at TPA, you’ll never be bored. It’s a great way to start and end your trip to Tampa.
Right in the heart of Tampa Bay is St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE), which is a quick drive from Tampa, St. Peterburg, or Clearwater. PIE is host to four value-conscious airlines offering nonstop service to destinations around the U.S. and Canada.
While waiting for your flight, enjoy an adult beverage and watch your favorite sport or just enjoy the view of Tampa Bay at Sam Adams Pub, or if you’re hungry, there is a full-service dining room in Sam Adams Grille. For a quick bite, the Tampa Bay Café and Bar offers deli sandwiches, paninis, and wraps, and the Shell Key Café offers pastries, breakfast/deli sandwiches, and salads.
To pick up a last-minute gift, a souvenir, or a travel item, there is an airport gift shop/newsstand as well as duty-free shops in the terminal.
