My favourite place

The temptation here is to name a place that is very cultural and mature but, in all honesty, my favourite place is Florida, USA. I am very much a big kid and thoroughly enjoy the theme parks of Orlando but the main draw is my beloved Tampa Bay Buccaneers and taking in a game at Raymond James Stadium.
