    Saint Augustine Transportation

    I bought a trolley ticket (good for 3 days) the first day I was in St. Augustine and rode it around to familarize myself with the city before doing any sightseeing. The trolley is very useful especially if you are staying in downtown St. Augustine as parking is almost impossible to find unless you pay $6+.

    Tampa Transportation

    Tampa International Airport is one of very few airports (that I've been to at least) which offers free wi-fi internet. I figured this was worthy of a tip since most airports make you buy a "pass" in order to access their internet. So if you're looking for an airport to depart out of, or have a long layover in, Tampa would be a good one due to its...

    The travel through here can be relatively easy. If taking I-95, go with the flow. That can get backed up at times, especially to airport and the Port Everglades into the cruise ship area. A taxi driver said that direction can take 1+ hours form the airport in the wrong time of day.
