Wrestlemania 36 hits Tampa, Florida April 5th, 2020 and it’s going to be a can’t miss experience for any wrestling fan. With Tampa hosting this year’s event, I have first-hand experience with the area and the ultimate guide for traveling to Tampa and making the best of your stay.

Venues

There are a few main venues you should keep in mind during your travels around Tampa for WrestleMania. A lot of these venues will host multiple events throughout the week and it’s always a good idea to keep these locations in mind when planning.

Raymond James Stadium – 4201 N Dale Mabry Hwy

Amalie Arena – 401 Channelside Dr

The Cuban Club – 2010 N Avenida Republica de Cuba

The Ritz Ybor – 1503 E 7th Ave

Bryan Glazer Family JCC – 522 N Howard Ave

The Italian Club – 1731 E 7th Ave

Wrestlemania 36 Accommodations

With all the different venues located around Tampa for Wrestlemania 36, it’s important to find accommodations close to the action. The easiest route I would recommend is finding a room through Airbnb. With all the events going on around Tampa, you’ll barely spend much time there anyway.

Next up I would recommend the Marriot Tampa Westshore. This hotel is the official hotel for WrestleCon and will have free on-site parking and a free shuttle to Wrestlemania. The hotel also has a lot of other great amenities to make this extremely easier for you during your stay. This includes a restaurant so you can avoid some of the mayhem around Tampa for a quick bite.

Getting To Tampa For Wrestlemania 36

Getting to Tampa for Wrestlemania may be a bit complicated but you have options! You have 3 options for airports close to Wrestlemania. Tampa International Airport, Sarasota International Airport, and Orlando International Airport. Tampa International is definitely the closest of the 3 but if you can find a cheap flight arriving in one of the others, it might be worth it.

As always, I recommend parking your car at the airport and using CLEAR to get through to your flight quickly and easily. Once you arrive at one of the 3 airports, grab a Hertz rental car. Having your vehicle will make getting to the abundance of events so much easier.

Events

There are a ton of events going on throughout the week, I’m definitely going to miss a few. I’ve been to two Wrestlemania’s in Florida and you need to experience some of the events outside to get the full experience.

I recommend TailGate Joe’s for the ultimate day of Wrestlemania party. Enjoy great food and drinks right outside of the stadium and it’s a great option if you have a group of friends that don’t want to venture too far from the stadium.

Thanks to several sources, I’ve been able to compile an extensive list of wrestling and non-wrestling events.

Outside of the wrestling world, I would recommend making a trip to Busch Gardens. A great theme park with a huge variety in roller coasters. Looking for some good food? I recommend trying out Yah Mon. It’s a great Carribean restaurant with lots of options. You have to try the Carribean Chicken platter and of course some Oxtail.

Are you heading to Wrestlemania? Do you have any tips or events I should add? Please make sure to leave a comment and I’ll make sure to update everything as it comes my way.
