Summer is special for so many reasons.  Beautiful weather, vacations, no school for the kids, and a relaxing atmosphere make countless people look forward to this time of year, each year.  Here at Treasure Bay Resort and Marina, one of the premiere hotels on Treasure Island, we understand this better than anyone else.  That is why we strive to go the extra mile to make sure you are getting the most out of your summer vacation.  Of course, there are certain traditions that make summer worth looking forward to.  In the U.S., watching or playing baseball is one of those things.  Here in Treasure Island, you are only 15 minutes from Tropicana Field – home of the Tampa Bay Rays.  During your stay this season, check the Rays calendar to see if they’re in town.  Maybe you’ll even get lucky this July and be around for one of the following special events.

Game of Thrones Night vs. The Boston Red Sox

On July 8th, the Tampa Bay Rays will play host to the Boston Red Sox in what is currently a battle between the number two and number three teams in Major League Baseball’s American League East.  This night is also designated as Game of Thrones night and will be commemorated by giving away Evan Longoria Game of Thrones themed bubbleheads to the first 15,000 fans through the gates.  Whether you are a Rays fan, Game of Thrones fan, or just get a kick out of fun giveaways, you won’t want to miss this matchup on July 8th!

Celebrate Christmas in July this Summer

On July 23rd, make the short jaunt over to Tropicana Field to help the Rays celebrate Christmas in July.   The game itself will be against the Texas Rangers, but the celebrations will be much more than that.  To start, every child in attendance that is under 14 will receive a Chris Archer Emoji Pillow, presented by Moffitt Cancer Center.  From there the fun and games will continue throughout the night, as the Rays fight to bring home another win!

Major League Baseball: A Perfect Family Outing

Baseball is an American tradition, and taking your kids to a Major League Baseball game is something they will never forget.  What better time to do it then when you’re on vacation?  This summer, while visiting hotels on Treasure Island, go watch the Rays take on the Baltimore Orioles on July 25th – a $2 Kids Tuesday event.  On this day, kids 14 and under can get tickets for $2 with the purchase of a regular adult seat.  If you cannot make it on July 25th, don’t fret! This special happens periodically throughout the summer.  Keep your eyes on the website for the latest deals and promotions.  

Going to a baseball game is fun for the entire family and can provide a welcome break from the sun and heat of summers in Florida.  With Tropicana Field just minutes away, watching the Tampa Bay Rays, no matter which game, is the perfect addition to any Treasure Bay Resort and Marina vacation.
