Tampa

Tampa ©
Tampa ranks among the country's most livable cities, attracting newcomers with its growing economy and status as a major port on the Gulf of Mexico.
Venture out of the city with trips to Clearwater (Clearwater Beach, Murielle Winery, & more), The Ringling (in Sarasota) and Siesta Beach (in Siesta Key). There's much more to do: get your game on at Axe Throwing Tampa, stop by La Faraona Cigars, stroll around Cotanchobee Fort Brooke Park, and take in the architecture and design of The University of Tampa Campus.

Plan my Tampa trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Zurich, Switzerland to Tampa is an approximately 13-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train; or do a combination of flight and bus. The time zone difference when traveling from Zurich to Tampa is minus 6 hours. Prepare for much hotter weather when traveling from Zurich in October: high temperatures in Tampa hover around 34°C and lows are around 24°C. You'll have a few hours on the 27th (Sun) to wrap things up before traveling to Crystal River.
