Howdy. My family and I are visiting Siesta Key at the moment and I thought about heading to Tampa to the Gun Show at the Fair Grounds and then take my family to the Grand Prix park on the NW end on Nebraska Ave but am unsure if it's a good area. I'm just wondering what are considered the city's good areas and the areas to definitely stay away from. Thanks!

Haven’t been to the gun show in a long time. Nothing special. The Grand Prix is ok and in the hood sorta. But it’s close to Shooter’s world and you can rent full autos there.....  If you decide to head to Tampa check out the river walk  downtown and maybe take 275 through St Pete and check out Fort De Soto on your way back.

Make sure you get ice cream at the Orange Octopus (Siesta Key)
The Bullet Hole is just around the corner from you on Orange Ave. And if wanting to drive to Venice, Total Impact Guns and Range.(no rentals)

Thanks for the info. I'll definitely get the ice cream while I'm here.

Before I forget. Check out The Salty Dog while you are in siesta key. Also check out munchies 420 and Yoder’s Amish restaurant since you’re in the Sarasota area.

Did you meet the homeless guy in the wheel chair in SK?

I'll do that except I get the same Amish cooking back up home because that's where they come from so I'll probably skip that one. Haven't seen the homeless guy yet though.

While in tampa, if you find yourself in Ybor City, dont pass up the opportunity to eat at the Columbia restaurant. The 1902 salad is awesome, as is the rest of their menu.
