Outback Bowl LogoHello Tampa, Melissa here. It’s getting closer to January and that means Outback Bowl time! The Bowl is played here in Tampa on New Year’s Day and matches teams from the SEC and Big Ten Conference. There will be events all week long leading up to the game. With all the attractions, restaurants and entertainment venues in Tampa Bay the only hard decision will be what not to do.

Luckily for visitors the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center here in Tampa gives visitors an easy decision on which hotel to stay at by offering a special Outback Bowl discount from Wednesday, December 8th until Sunday, January 2nd, 2011.

The discounted rate is only $79 plus tax per night. Worry not, that amazing price isn’t  just a bed-guests will enjoy a free full hot American breakfast buffet daily, free wireless internet, two HEATED swimming pools and even a TGI Friday’s restaurant right on site!

This is a great price, so if you’re looking for somewhere to stay during Outback Bowl week look no further than the Clarion Hotel and Conference Center. Rooms could go quickly, so if interested do not hesitate to book a room…or two.
