The lightning have always been a team I liked and respected so I'll have no problem rooting for the Bolts. I'll have to reconcile any B's/Bolts conflicts but I'll figure it out as I go . Depending on how $$ all sugar off after buying the new place etc I plan on getting @ least a 10 game package for the wife and I.

You mean like Sanibel? What places would you suggest for a 2-week road trip with the girlfriend?

Last year we were in Miami Beach, Key West, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers Beach and Tampa.

Clearwater beach in nice. You need to hit the East coast beaches as well.

Yeah, we've been to Clearwater and it was great.

We haven't decided yet where in particular in Florida we want to spend our vacation. My boss (who has a house in Jacksonville and visits Florida all the time with his family) just told me that the Panhandle is really underrated and has one of the best beaches ("Florida's best-kept secrets") that at the same time are not so crowded (except Panama City).

So I'm open for suggestions really.

Maybe do Jacksonville south through St Augustine, the Space Coast, Daytona/Cocoa Beach, to Orlando. Tons to do and see and nice beaches. Seriously, there's nothing much up in the panhandle. Maybe some less populated beaches but you can find that anywhere.

Hey I'm new to the side forum. But I want to introduce my self! I am from Colorado(born in Nashville though) but moved here 10 years ago and live in Orlando where all my family is from Leesburg. I'm an Avs fan first in foremost but I played hockey here at RDV after playing travel hockey in CO and played for the Stars for one year here Then played all my high school here. I been tons of Bolts games but I haven't been a fan a first but now I am going to UCF(History Degree) because I can't move back to Colorado because of intuition costs went up because I left so long ago. I used to work at the Amway Center for security. Now I love the Bolts as my second team and my favorite player is Victor Hedmen. Although I hate living in Orlando(way to hot and no ocean breeze) I love the city of Tampa. Although I will be moving back to Colorado the Bolts will be my second favorite team. I can't wait for this season and can't wait to see more Bolts games this year at the Forum!

Sorry if my grammar is bad I'm have a Disability

Guys, I have a couple of questions, flying over in October and will be staying in Orlando area but coming into Tampa for a few of the day I am here (mainly to watch the games).

1. What are the nicest beaches in the Tampa area, preferably near some bars..
2. Any must see attractions in Tampa?
