"The best way to get around Tampa"
If you are moving to Tampa the Cross Town is a must! Although it is a toll road the fee is not outragous and it is definatly the best maintaned road system in Tampa bay. The Cross Town gets you every where you need to go and with a sunpass paying your tolls is easy with no stopping at the booths. There is of course no street lights on the cross town so it is pretty much smooth and fast most of the time. On a rare occastion you will get a break down or a fender bender but be prepaired to move fast on the road as it is used by locals with a speed problem!
