Everything is ridiculously priced, food, drink, water! The statudm is paid for by the user of the venue, so why do the vendors have to gouge people??? It makes you not want to go there just because of anger. There must be some reason?? like...More

Watched Bucs vs. 49ers and it was great. A little sunny, so bring your sun glasses. Remember NFL policy only clear bags/purses allowed. Otherwise you’ll need to leave your purse in the car or rent a portable locker in the parking lot for $10!

Attended a Steelers game against TB. The stadium was immaculate. Easy access. Great staff and scenery. Great fans. Can't wait to attend a game in the near future. Can't go wrong visiting this stadium and cheering on your respected team!

We visited the stadium during the Outback Bowl. This place is so nice and clean. Our section and seating were easy to find and we didn't have to go all the way around the world to get to a concession stand.

An awesome atmosphere to watch a pro football game. My kids 8 and 10 had a blast and the stadium staff were most welcoming. Highly recommend!

Though the game did not turn out as we would like, our first trip to RJS was enjoyable. Nice, clean stadium with excellent services and amenities within. Friendly game management staff throughout.

They sell pit passes that allow you to go down into the pit about 2 or 3 hours prior to the show.

A few questions (7 Replies)
My wife and I are visiting Tampa from London for two weeks from 24 November. We already have tickets for Buccaneers vs Falcons on the following day and Idina Menzel at the Straz Center on 1 December. The main reason for the trip is for the NFL game as I became a Bucs fan after seeing them play in London as the home team and it appeared as though they needed the support! Would anyone recommend things to do for these two weeks, or would we be better off staying in the area from 24 November...More

It will be too cold to go into the water but on a sunny day you can take a sunset stroll on the beach. Will you be renting a car to get around? In Tampa there's also the Florida Aquarium if that is of interest. And about 1.5 miles from that is Ybor City which comes alive at night but still interesting to walk in daytime along it's 7th Ave. It has the famous Columbia restaurant that features flamenco dancers at dinner time and also the Greek Acropolis restaurant with belly dancers at dinner...More

Lake Buena Vista to Raymond James Stadium (2 Replies)
Hi, im visiting Orlando in December and would love to watch the tampa bay buccaneers. Does anyone know the best way to tavel from Lake Buena Vista to the raymond james stadium? I was just wondering if there was any public transport? Thanks!

Response fromKat_Cubs_fan|
First of all, the only feasibly inexpensive transport between Orlando and Tampa is Greyhound bus service; there's no real "public" transport between those two cities (I'm guessing you don't drive or won't have a vehicle). Second, most NFL games sell out ahead of time, even a team playing as poorly as the Bucs are this year, so unless you already have tickets, you may find it hard to get them. Gator tours don't even have a package to Tampa.

Safety in St. Pete Beach. (9 Replies)
I've been doing a bit of research and thinking of taking a week's holiday in St. Pete Beach. I thought it would be fun to be able to hang out on the beach and see some sports sites like Raymond James Stadium and Tropicana Field. However, my research seems to show that crime is a real problem in the Tampa Bay area. So, my question is, how safe is St. Pete Beach? Is it even safe to travel into Tampa to see the sites?

Response fromMaya58|
Oh my goodness. I am not sure where your research has taken you, but this is not an accurate picture of this area. Please allow me to elaborate. First off, St Pete Beach is a small town on a barrier island, accessible by causeway from the larger city of St Petersburg. Very family friendly and comfortable for all. For example, last year, Parents Magazine named St Pete Beach the Best Family Beach Destination in Florida. No significant worries about safety or crime. On a personal note, I...More
