Getting to Clearwater
By air:

Tampa International (TPA). Airport shuttles and rental cars are available at the airport. Travel time from TPA to the hotel is approximately 30 minutes.

By car:

Interstate 75 (I-75) carries visitors from midwest and northern states directly to the Tampa Bay area. Interstate 95 (I-95) enters the northeast end of the state and connects to I-75 via I-10, an east-west route which enters the Florida panhandle from Alabama.

I-75 becomes 1-275 north of the Tampa Bay area. To reach Clearwater, take the Tampa International Airport exit, and then proceed west on State Road 60 onto scenic Courtney Campbell Causeway (also known as State Road 60) which terminates on Clearwater Beach.

From Orlando, take 1-4 west. Then follow the signs to Clearwater.
