Tropicana Field, the home field of Tampa Bay Rays, is the only active dome-shaped Major League Baseball stadium with a fixed roof. It seats more than 31,000 people. Head to a huge tank filled with stingrays, an homage to the team's name, beyond the right center-field fence if you'd like to pet the creatures. Those more interested in the baseball aspect will want to take the behind-the-scenes tour, which offers access to the field, press box, and more. Check out the Ted Williams Museum and Hitters Hall of Fame, too. Though Williams was never a Tampa Bay Ray--he played for the Red Sox long before the Rays even became a team--the museum honors players with Williams' passion and talent for hitting. As you enter the stadium, note the tropical-theme mosaic: It is the fifth-longest outdoor mosaic in the United States.

  • This was my first time there in over 10 years. The stadium was very clean and well maintained. Lots of security so I felt really safe. The staff were super friendly and helpful. The food was great. Can't wait to go back again. Lots of fun!
  • We had the opportunity to finally go to a Ray's game, and we were totally impressed with the stadium! We only have 1 other stadium to compare to (Oriole Park at Camden Yards), but Tropicana Field was so clean, had great amenities, and everyone including personnel were so friendly! Accommodations were convenient.
