1 Tropicana Dr., St. Petersburg, FL 33705, USA
Watching the Tampa Bay Rays play baseball in the air-conditioned comfort of the Tropicana Dome is wonderful! Don't let the outdoor baseball purists tell you otherwise. This is especially true on those days when it is 90 degrees with 90 percent...

I loved growing up in Fort Worth and I'm convinced it's the 'next Austin'. The parks, the modern art scene, the Trinity River, the growing gourmet food scene are all such hits. Don't forget Sundance Square, Cowtown, Billy Bob's or the Bass Hall....

Chase Field has a sliding roof so if it's too hot, the roof closes and the place gets air-conditioned. Plenty of open air when you want to watch a game outdoors, plenty of air-conditioning when the outdoors in the summer is a bit warm. There is a...
