The Popular US Airport That Samantha Brown Calls Her Favorite

By Leslie Veliz


In early 2024, travel expert Samantha Brown told Forbes, "My favorite airport is Tampa. It is the best airport in the United States." Known as TPA, the airport is quite stellar.
Brown continued, "It's always been such an easy experience with the flow of traffic [...], the architecture in terms of keeping people moving, crowd control and then amenities."
The airport prides itself on expedited security screenings. Brown told Forbes that when she flies out of TPA, "You always leave on time and arrive early in New York."
Restaurants at the airport include everything from P.F. Changs to Bavaro's and Cigar City Taproom. In her interview with Forbes, Brown said she enjoys dining at Columbia Café.
Moreover, TPA has a connected hotel, Tampa Airport Marriott, perfect for those with lengthy layovers. Brown also suggests visiting the nearby Anna Maria Island.
