Amalie is a really beautiful arena. Is shines blue during a Lightning game and it’s always a happy environment. It’s a really good experience for hockey enthusiasts and families looking for something to do.

I always have a blast at Amalie. Whether I'm watching the Lightning, the Storm or some Monster Trucks go ham, it's always a good time.

Pros: Poutine. Lightning.

Cons: Parking and that post game traffic. Hopping on the crosstown can save you some time getting out of downtown if it's on your way.
