thinking about coming and staying in Tampa/Clearwater for a couple of days, have 11 year old twins. Thanks
We love the Tampa area. The beaches here are really pretty. I loved the Marriott Tampa Airport hotel, which is IN the airport. It would be good if you need one close by because of an early morning or late night flight. But, the beaches are at leat a half hour from Tampa. We liked Clearwater Beach and Anna Maria Island, which is a bit of a drive down the coast, but worth it.
I would definitely recommend staying out on one of the beaches as opposed to staying in Tampa. Anywhere from St. Pete beach up to Clearwater Beach.
