This week’s Tampa Bay Lightning fan poll: Where would you go?

This season, Senior Columnist Clark Brooks will take the pulse of Raw Charge nation with a weekly poll about current or future events and non-happenings, for the sake of accomplishing not much, probably.

This week, with the Lightning on the road visiting Toronto and Buffalo, it was time for the annual tradition of the Father’s Trip. Players dads came from all over... including Louis Domingue’s pop Charles who traveled all the way from Ethiopia, where he’s shooting a documentary film... to hang out with their sons on the road. This trip usually involves a stop in Toronto, so that everyone can visit the Hockey Hall of Fame, which makes for a pretty great side jaunt on what is undoubtedly an already fun trip.

This week’s poll is fantasy wish fulfillment. Let’s pretend you have the opportunity to join the Lightning on the road for one game. Of course, you get transportation and great tickets to that night’s game. But you also get to choose the destination AND that day’s activity in the city where the game is being played. It’s not the dads’ trip though, so Toronto and the hall of fame are not on the table. With this in mind, where would you go?

Feel free to suggest other fantastic travel options in the comments.
