Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg

#4 of 81 in Things to do in St. Petersburg
Tropicana Field, the home field of Tampa Bay Rays, is the only active dome-shaped Major League Baseball stadium with a fixed roof. It seats more than 31,000 people. Head to a huge tank filled with stingrays, an homage to the team's name, beyond the right center-field fence if you'd like to pet the creatures. Those more interested in the baseball aspect will want to take the behind-the-scenes tour, which offers access to the field, press box, and more. Check out the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame, too. Though Williams was never a Tampa Bay Ray--he played for the Red Sox long before the Rays even became a team--the museum honors players with Williams' passion and talent for hitting. As you enter the stadium, note the tropical-theme mosaic: It is the fifth-longest outdoor mosaic in the United States.

    This was our first visit to a Baseball Game. Had a fantastic night. Great atmosphere. We're staying in Kissimmee and drove down for fame. Would highly recommend this experience.  more »

    This is definitely one of the most comfortable, organized with a good location parks I have visited. It is always a good experience to see the Rays play. Parking options are very good.  more »

    The title says it all. It's old, the lighting is horrid and so are the acoustics. Food choices are ok, but the ticket office didn't make it easy for us to accommodate a party of 17 (too small for grou...  more »

    Loved loved loved our time here. It was our first time here and we had a great time. The stadium was clean and all the staff that we encountered were very friendly. The stingray petting zone was awesome and you could tell they were treating the animals right. If we ever return to the Tampa area we will definitely be catching a game here.

    The Rays game was good as usual, however, I am very upset with their stingray exhibit. You used to be able to feed them whenever the exhibit was open but now all you can do is touch them. They were used to being fed a good amount for a couple hours of the day and now they are only being fed once. I sat next to the tank and observed the rays eating the shells/rocks on the bottom of the tank and shuffling through it to find any bit of food possible. I hope this changes very soon.

    I am a fan of the quirkiness of this stadium which probably makes me one of the few. It is a stadium meant to house a different sport so it has odd seats, obstructed views and pathways to nowhere. But, I love it the ability to bring in outside food/drink (water that is sealed) makes it affordable and many of the in-house offerings and options for food and beer are top notch

    Took in a Rays doubleheader. Drove up from Sarasota in a downpour and entered the Trop in a shower. Bought ticket at ticket office- pleasant and friendly staff. Purchased soda at concession- polite, efficient and friendly staff. Got to seats- Courteous and friendly usher. Game 1 was excellent, game 2 fun and I was dry and cool in the A/C the whole time. Fantastic experience.

    Great place to see a a game. Calm atmosphere unlike other ballparks, ray tank nice for little ones, if you get there early players will sign autographs, easy to park only $15.00. Tip get there early so you can park in stadium parking and see all the stadium has to offer
