Charlotte Sports Park

Editor's pick

Categories: Stadium

Features: Kid-friendly

Alcohol: Full bar

Parking: Lot, Street

Located about an hour and a half south of Tampa Bay, the refurbished park opened in 2009 as the home of the Tampa Bay Rays spring training and the Charlotte Stone Crabs minor league team. It features a boardwalk ringing the outfield, a family-friendly kids play area, upgraded concession stands and a team store. Crowd favorites include a full-service tiki bar located in center field (but watch out for batting practice balls that can fly over the fence) and the boardwalk area above the bullpen.

If you don't want to sit in the sun, check out the seats in the 200 Level, where shade is typically rows 8 and above on the first base side, and the last three rows (14-16) on the third base side.

Parking is fairly easy, but it's not paved, so expect dust or mud. It helps to remember where you park if you can pick out a landmark tree or light pole, too. (Trust us on this one.)

A tip: To get there, you have to travel several miles from the interstate on a road with a considerably lower speed limit. Keep it there if you want to avoid a ticket.
