Greetings Rays Fans!
A couple friends and I take a trip to a different baseball stadium each year and are heading to Tampa/St. Pete for Orioles series in mid-May. I've done some searching around the interwebs and need some help. I'd love it if you guys can help design an idea 48 hours in the area centered around Friday night and Saturday afternoon games.
Basically, the trips will consist of the games, one good meal at a place that is unique to the area, good pizza and/or burgers, drinking in sports bars, and something to do during the day on Saturday before the 4:00 game. Ideally, the restaurants and definitely the bars are walking distance from the hotel.
We're also open to anything else sports-related. If the Lightning are still going strong and have a game that Saturday night, we're in great shape, but if that doesn't work out, we'd love to know what else to look for.
Finally, tips on what neighborhood to stay in and whether we should rent a car or rely on cabs would be great.
Basically, I'd for those of you who live in the area to help design your ideal 2-day Rays trip.
Thanks for any help you can give.
