Husband and I have been to Orlando, but have always wanted to visit St. Petersburg. We have a sister that lives in Merritt Island, and other than that, we would hope to go to a Rays game, and possibly to Busch Gardens. We are both planning to retire next summer, so we are tentatively thinking of visiting in the fall. Is there a best time to visit? What about hurricane season? We are looking to stay at the Hollander hotel, and will probably drive down (we live in the Midwest). Any other suggestions? Thanks!
