Going to a concert at amphitheater at fairgrounds

We were wondering if this is close to downtown or if we should stay closer to the area. Spending a couple of days there before the concert and don't know where we should stay to have fun before as it looks like there is nothing to do in that area except for the concert. We would appreciate any ideas! Thanks!!

You're right ... the amphitheater is like all by itself with not much around. The nearest thing you might be interested in is the Hard Rock casino that is walkable from amphitheater but not from the nearby hotels. And it is very far from downtown Tampa.

What would you like to be nearby for those couple days? Nightlife, shopping? Nearest beaches are over at Clearwater Beach - a good 35 or 40 min from the amphitheater.

Thank you, we think we will stay in Clearwater for a night and then go over in that area. Any recommendations for the beach would be great!

Lots of recommendations on the Clearwater Beach forum.
