Tropicana Field is where Tampa Bay’s Rays come out to play. That’s real-live fish and baseball players, too. When the boys of summer round the bases in Tampa Bay, it’s at Tropicana Field. Our hotel is near Tropicana Field, so it makes it easy to take yourselves out to the ball game in less than 15 minutes or so. Peanuts and Cracker Jacks are optional, but you’ll also find stadium fare with local flair like Cuban sandwiches and empanadas. Tropicana Field is also home to St. Pete’s annual Gasparilla Bowl.
