Getting around
The best way to see the sights in Tampa is Uber. Uber is a great way to get around to the immediate destination spots in Tampa: Ybor City, The Hard Rock, Downtown, Busch Gardens and Adventure Island, Amelie Arena (hockey & concerts) Raymond James Stadium (home of the Buccaneers & USF football). If planning to head to the beaches, car rentals are a great choice too.
