I'm starting a plan this year's guys weekend trip. Our only options are Orlando or Tampa. Can you guys recommend our best option? Let me start by saying that we're not into golf, strip clubs, and/or tourist traps. Our main purpose is to hang out, find day-time activities where we can mingle with the locals, and explore the nightlife. We're in our mid-thirties so college hang-out bars are out of the question. St. Pete already offers a huge advantage: the beach, but I'd like to get people's opinions as to what makes one better than the other. Are there any beer festivals or any other festivals that locals like to attend worth while (since our dates are kind of flexible)? Any info on what city is better for our purpose would be greatly appreciated.
