haha - Downtown Jax might be worse than Tampa.  That said, Shad Khan has invested a lot into gentrifying downtown.  It's on the up and up.  The Riverside area has become something really cool now.  Tons of residential mixed in with retail, restaurants and bars.  Great little area you can walk around and get a solid variety.  Similar to Tampa, Jax has it pockets of greatness but because of the size of the city, it's just a bit more spread out than Tampa.  I mean, Jax Beach living is the best Florida has to offer IMO.  

Both cool cities though.  Both on the upswing.  They are the only cities I'd live at in the state.  

Check out these 2 great articles for Jax and Tampa.  Our markets are booming!!!!

I'll check it out when we get that fancy hi speed railway connecting tampa, orlando, jax, miami and ft.myers.

 

Tampa is very strange that it seems every 2 blocks the area goes from nice to down right dangerous. *visitors be warned*

Yes it does. A lot of really nice on top of really bad. But that's true in most cities...

Flying down on the 9th with 2 sons from CT, 3rd son driving up from WPB and will be our chauffer. Sister has a beach house in Gulfport she is letting us use. Never been down there before but looks like a fun area. Return home Monday night. I'll ask if there is room for camper in driveway!

St Pete has a bunch of small breweries all within walking distance of each other. cool area, and a short Uber ride to the stadium. We usually stay in Madeira Beach in a NO KIDS hotel  but that's a bit far to the stadium. St Pete is a fun area.

 

Not sure I trust your hotel choices after the KC fiasco

Did he make you cuddle with him in a dumpster as well? I am not going to fall for that trick a 4th time.

That will be a nice trip!

Trips with your sons to see the Jets, that is going to be a lot of fun!

It didn't feel very scientific. Unless that was a test tube in his pocket.

Gulfport is sort of a run down but up and coming arts fartsy place. Could be worse. Youll b close to downtown st pete, which is heaven plus great beaches. 

Tampa is 99 percent slum. Downtown is a bore. Dont expect much. 

If anyone wants advice, get a cheap rental car and stay in downtown st pete. Drive the 35 minutes to the stadium

@gEYno what he said. I'd stay in Channelsode as well. If there's a Lightning home game it's a great atmosphere. If you wanted to be closer to the stadium I'd stay by the airport, but there's less to do.

Theres NOTHING to do at the airport. 

Theres NOTHING to do downtown. 

CHANNSIDE is decent.... Ybor is a lil new orleans type place worth going. 

Your best bet, again, is beautiful downtowns st pete just across the bridge. Nice waterfront, parks, marina, museums bars restaurants, events, live music

If you're with the wife Hyde Park has enough to do. Good shopping and restaurants. Bar Taco and On Swann are both great imo
