If you have a stopover in the USA after an international flight you will have to go through customs and security check and aslo check out and check in your bags for the next, domestic, flight. So if you’re travelling from outside of the USA, you will save a lot of time if you choose a flight without a stopover in the USA.
To get here & visit the US, you must apply for a visa.
Some countries are a part of a visa waiver program (VWP), which enables the residents of theese countries to apply for a tourist visa over the internet.
The visa costs $14,00/person. Follow this link to apply.
If your country is not a part of VWP you have to apply for a visa through the American embassy in your country.

There is a bus stop next to the building where there are regular tours to Tampa, St.Pete or the beach.
There are not many taxis in this area and if you happen to find one, it will probably not be a cheap fare. The way to get around if you have had a beer or more is to use UBER. It is cheap, fast and very easy to make a reservation. You will always get an estimate before you make the reservation and the car will be at your door step within 3-5 minutes.
Everything is run through your smartphone and computer, all you have to do is register at their site and give UBER your card details. The payment will be deducted from your card when you reach your destination. A 15% tip is always welcome…
