If you’re flying into Tampa International Airport, there’s a good chance that you’re visiting Florida for a little rest and relaxation. But sometimes even the most seasoned travelers en route to a resort can forget to pack a key item, or maybe they just want to expand their options before getting to their vacation destination. Luckily TPA’s retail shops on Level 3 of our Main Terminal have plenty of choices for passengers to peruse before heading to their hotel.

They call this the Sunshine State for good reason, so wearing some UV protection for your peepers is a critical component of any visit. The Shoppes at Bayshore offers dozens of choices from top brands like Ray-Ban, Maui Jim and Oakley. The Shoppes are open 24 hours, too, so you can even pick your pair of sunglasses at night.
