Tropicana Field, 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.

  • I have never figured out why the national media keeps dissing the Trop. It's indoors, yes, but you can't play baseball outside in FL in the summer anyway. There is ample parking and you can bring some...  more »
  • Although many think Tropicana field needs a Reno, I love going there to watch a game. You can bring your own food (not drinks) and sit in a/c comfort not bothered by thunder and lightening outside.  more »
  • There's baseball for everyone and a lineup of entertaining innings breaks for the whole family. Following our taligate picnic at Tropicana field, we enjoyed cheering on the teams at the Rays/Jays seas...  more »

  • We were seated in the press box with a group. It was great! Tropicana Field is air conditioned! It's the best way to see baseball during the summer in Florida! The field is easy to get to. They have ample parking and plenty of food and souvenir kiosks. Like all professional ball fields, the prices are very high for almost everything. Go Rays!
  • It may not be the the nicest or prettiest stadium but let me say everything else makes up for it. AC at 72 degrees, affordable seats, and overall a relaxed atmosphere to see a baseball game! Family friendly activities all around the park and a bar where you can chill out and watch the rays. Personally i think it is a very enjoyable experience for everyone
  • Parking pricey. Cheaper parking- wear comfy walking shoes. As all sports arenas food and drink are overpriced. Allow you to bring in food and water. Check website for restrictions. Good seating options. Easy to get in and out on roads compared to other bigger city sports places.
  • Huge indoor stadium! I was really surprised at the amount of space in here. The seats were comfortable and it was roomy. There’s also a tank with sting rays in it which is pretty different if you ask me!
  • Who’s the smart guy that decided it would be a great idea to play baseball in doors. I hate seeing my Reds play inside. Papa john pizza inside is cool though. But seriously, baseball inside? What next? AP
