Although located an hour and a half outside of Orlando in St. Petersburg, spending an evening at Tropicana Field cheering on the home baseball team, the Tampa Bay Rays, is certainly worth the drive. The domed stadium, built in the 1990’s, is located in downtown St. Petersburg, easily accessible from the I-275. The enclosed grounds ensures that no game will ever be cancelled due to Florida’s many summer thunderstorms, and the temperature inside stays at a cool 72 degrees at all times. Parking is simple too; Tropicana Field has large on-site parking lots, usually costing $15 per car. However, as a constant visitor to the Rays games, I recommend parking in one of the many off-site lots, usually costing $5.
