Salt River Fields
If you can imagine baseball heaven—a lush green field nestled between mountaintops and perpetual sunshine—Salt River Fields just might be what it looks like. Spring training season offers a high concentration of the best American baseball teams preparing for the upcoming season. Every February, a special migration arrives in Arizona as baseball fans from across the country descend for spring training. There’s something about fans rallying together and celebrating our nation’s pastime that makes it worth every second. You can hit a number of different games with relative ease. Relax on the lawn with your picnic lunch and cooler of ice-cold refreshments for a perfect day in the sunshine. Tickets are affordable, especially when compared with the big stadiums. (If you're visiting after spring training, though, don't get discouraged. The facility hosts many events ranging from food festivals to concerts and even private parties! Check out their website for special event listings. )
