Default Shopping in Tampa

Hi Gang!

I am taking a cruise on Carnival's Inspiration at the end of the month. The thing is our flight gets into Tampa at like 9am. Is there some shopping by the airport and if so anyone know which stores?

Thanks a bunch!

The International Plaza is near the airport. They offer very nice stores. Coach, Dillard's, Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Tiffany's to name a few. They also have excellent restaurants. Hope this helps.

If you want to see more stores search for International Plaza online.

DIllards is the Marshall Fields of Tampa, nice stuff there. Tampa has lots of nice malls great prices to as the tax is way less then up here in Chicago.

As they said International and Westshore plaza both very close to airport.
Also in Channelside which is the district next to the Port there are many of shops.

If you're flying in the same day as your cruise you might want to head over to the port. We've been let on board as early as 11:00 a.m.. Once your flight lands, you debark, travel over in the shuttle and pick up your luggage it may be closer 10:00. The port's about 15 min away from the airport.
