Tampa International Airport (TPA) is one of the most highly rated airports in the U.S. It is about a 20 minute drive from USF (around $50 by Taxi).
A variety of accommodations, with special conference rates can be accessed at Accommodations, which also lists some additional accommodations close to the USF campus.
Regrettably, Tampa does not offer much in the way of public transportation. Car rentals are cheap, however, and there are many interesting locations within short or moderate driving distance, including:
- Within a 10 miles of USF: Busch Gardens (2 miles), Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI; 1 mile), Lowry Park Zoo (6 miles)
- Within 100 miles: Walt Disney World (60 minutes), Universal Studios Orlando (75 minutes), Orlando Airport (90 minutes)
- Within 300 miles: Miami, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach (4 hours)
