If youâ€™ve been lucky enough to snag some tickets or hoping to pick up a pair for the next games, the party is in full swing and you donâ€™t want to miss the action. While youâ€™re here, take advantage of the fantastic weather with some swimming, sailing, snorkeling, fishing, and parasailing activities at nearby beaches or stay local and put on some suntan lotion and shades and head to the Causeway and Ben T. Davis Beach. Itâ€™s one of my favorite spots for picnicking and relaxing. All along the Causeway there are places to park or fish and just sit back and watch the birds fly by. There are plenty of hotels in the downtown area near Amalie Arena or just minutes away in travel time. If youâ€™re not familiar with Tampa and not sure whatâ€™s available or where to stay, Hipmunk is a great resource. Check it out and make your reservations at one of Tampaâ€™s excellent hotels and come on down and cheer the Bolts or the Blackhawks on to victory.
