We would like to vacation in Tampa this year. We would like to go to Busch Gardens, see a ballgame and go to the beach. I would like to find a hotel that is centrally located between the airport, Devil Rays field, and BG. We will arrive in Tampa late int the evening, go to BG the next and take in a game the day after that. Then we sill drive to the beach for the rest of our stay, as I understand the beach is 45 minutes from BG. I just figured this would make for less driving than staying at beach the whole time....
Also, I would like advice on which coastal town to stay in after leaving Tampa. We would like to relax, and no "spring break" beaches. We have a 9 and 6 year old. The Bilmar in Treasure Island is well rated...any feelings on this place? Is the beach nice here? It looks to be quite a across it to the water in photos...lol. I was also told that Indian Shores is a less crowded/commercialized and relaxing stretch of beach...any input here?
Is the end of June a bad time for crowds in this part of Florida?
All advice welcome!
