    I probably already asked this but I forget.

    Places to stay. Just in Tampa Wednesday night. Ybor looks fun, but is it too college aged/bourbon street crap? Iím older, just looking at the cigar stores, etc.

    Downtown Tampa on the river looks nice, like across canal/bourbon in NOLA feel. Not close to the commotion.

    And then the Seminole hard rock. Looks like you can walk to/from the venue, but itís the round way about?

    Only a few hours in tampa before the show so really doesnít matter. Might just to airport hotel but if you can walk safely to/from hard rock, Iíd do that.

    Donít stay in Ybor. The downtown hotels are all really nice, and the Riverwalk is great. Staying at Hard Rock would certainly solve the transportation problem, I just donít know how nice the hotel is. They just added on a huge new wing recently so Iím sure itís nice, itís just not my scene so I never go there. I do know itís a little more expensive, but if youíre saving on ride-sharing, it evens out.

    Thanks guys!

    St. Pete would be my first choice but itís kind of far for just one afternoon and going back and forth.

    Got it - No Ybor. Seems people either love it or hate it, like bourbon street.

    Downtown is where Iíve been looking, the river walk seems really cool to explore. So either that or Hard Rock. Hard Rock isnít my scene at all but itís new and renovated and close.

    Thanks again!

    Also vote no on Ybor. It's neither "nice" nor close.

    There's also the Holiday Inn Express right across from the venue if you end up prioritizing convenience. It's probably 10 min less of a walk than the casino, and right now it's $50 cheaper. Just FYI.

    Ybor is just seedy and sketchy. I worked down there for a couple years, you see some shit after dark.

    During the daytime there are plenty of good restaurants and bars, just call it an early night and avoid the crazies.

    Been there so many times on the weekends for concerts/stand up, and it's like the trashy circus came to town.

    No worse than the shit I saw on Beale Street when I lived in Memphis though.

    If you decide to stay downtown, try the Marriott on Water St. It's basically across the street from Amalie Arena, where the Lightning play. It's pretty nice and has a good pool. It underwent a makeover within the last 2 years. If you stay there, build in some time if you are getting your car from the valet-they take forever. It's not that close to the venue but you could uber if you plan on having cocktails

    I always stay at this holiday inn for DMB shows at the fairgrounds. It's fine, nothing special but an easy walk across the street and has a Five Guys next door, which is good for getting a burger after the show

    Wait, don't the shows usually let out around 11:00? How is Five Guys open then?

    There’s a Fairfield Inn that’s right down MLK drive - probably a mile and a half drive

    not sure what the regular hours are for this Five Guys, but it's always open after the show. If you plan on swinging by after the show, I'd advise to not doodle around once the show ends because it gets pretty crowded and you'll be waiting a bit.

    Best place to make a weekend out of the Palm Beach area?

    I've sold the trip to my fiancee (not a huge DMB fan, but also hasn't been to a show before)

    We only have tickets to N2. Looking to stay some place near the water for a couple of nights... willing to drive 30-45 mins to the venue if the location is better for the stay

    Back in 2012 we stayed at the Omphoy, which is apparently now called Tideline, and it was fantastic. Got a massage and everything.

    Thanks for the input. Seems reasonably priced and beachfront. We'll check it out for sure.

    What's the parking lot/tailgate situation like at WPB? We are flying in Thursday and have a rental car but would probably prefer to Uber if that's possible. How tough is it to get an Uber post-show, acknowledging that may be a tough question to answer in the after times.

    Only been once to wpb in 2019 going again this year. We ubered to the show with no issues except the dropoff and pickup lot is a little walk (maybe 5 min or so) to the door so account that for time. Leaving I think we waited around 20-30 minutes both nights. Best thing to do is to call one as soon as you walk out of the venue because it will take at least that long for one to get there IMO.

    In the past it has been fairly easy at WPB. I suggest walking a little east of the venue taking traffic into consideration. Sometimes walking away from the immediate area has worked well for other events and you can get a ride easier and faster.

    The tailgate is very calm and laxed. Everyone who is normal fans are very friendly.

    Section 14 Row F at Tampa, I'm happy with that. I've seen a couple shows from the front of that section, the sound is fantastic.
