Tampa is a big city close to relaxation and adventure if you know how to plan it. An average drive to the beach takes about 30 minutes from downtown and Orlando is only an hour and a half away. You can stay in the city and go to a sporting event all year round. We have the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Tampa Bay Lightning, and the Tampa Bay Rays. The Orlando Magic aren't a far drive if you are a basketball fan and we also have arena Football and a professional soccer team.
The Tampa Bay Rays are an American League MLB team that plays in Tampa. One of the youngest teams, the Rays always manage to pull the season together at the end and make a good chase for a playoff spot.
