Where To Stay:
Definitely plan on staying downtown or at one of the beaches in the
Tampa-Clearwater-St. Petersburg area. There's lots of nightlife and lots of things to do in this tourist trap. I would stay at the Hyatt Downtown, The Westin, or the The Waterside Marriott.
Be sure to make your way down to Ybor City for a Bourbon
Street-type atmosphere on the weekends.
