Beach Bar
$$
“One of my favorite beach locations.... good food, offers spirits, you can rent chairs by a tipping basis... lounge chair with table, or as many as you need... typically there is live music. Just watch out for the birds if you are eating on the beach, they will dive bomb you and steal your food!! Whichever beach you go to.... DON'T FEED THE BIRDS!! You will regret it! Parking is $5.00 the last I was there with no time limit. ”

Baseball Stadium
“TAMPA BAY RAYS BASEBALL !!!! From the Friendly Native, About a 20 minute drive or cab ride to Tropicana Field, also commonly known as The Trop, is a domed stadium located in St. Petersburg, Florida, United States, that has been the home of the Tampa Bay Rays of Major League Baseball (MLB) since the team's inaugural season in 1998. The stadium is also used for college football, and from December 2008 to December 2017 was the home of the St. Petersburg Bowl, an annual postseason bowl game. It is currently the only non-retractable domed stadium in Major League Baseball, making it the only year-round indoor venue in MLB. Tropicana Field is the smallest MLB stadium by seating capacity when obstructed-view rows in the uppermost sections are covered with tarps as they are for most Rays games. Tropicana Field opened in 1990 and was originally known as the Florida Suncoast Dome. In 1993, the Tampa Bay Lightning moved to the facility and its name was changed to the ThunderDome until the team moved to their new home in downtown Tampa in 1996. In October 1996, Tropicana Products, a fruit juice company then based in nearby Bradenton, signed a 30-year naming rights deal.”

Art Museum
“I just love the glass room in the museum. It is dark and lit with spot lights so that the pieces sparke and mesmerize. The museum does have some impressionist paintings and hosts a variety of traveling exhibits during the year.”
