Baseball Spring Training


As the boys of summer start warming up on the baseball diamonds of Florida and Arizona this March, the rest of the country takes notice. Like a ray of sun piercing winter clouds, spring training awakens Americans' hopes for the arrival of spring. Soon, we realize, we'll be swinging baseball bats, not snow shovels.

A baseball spring training trip in a Cruise America RV rental is the perfect way to shake the winter blues! From one ballpark to the next, you can drive your home on wheels to watch big-league sluggers drive in home runs. You'll cruise along in your RV rental comfortably, too. Each Cruise America RV gives you standard amenities such as a kitchenette with hot and cold water, a bathroom with shower, a sleeping area with privacy curtains, and climate control.

Whether you follow Florida's Grapefruit League or Arizona's Cactus League, a Cruise America RV rental will put you in the center of the action. Looking for a fly-and-drive baseball spring training trip? Cruise America operates rental locations in Florida and Arizona.

Boston Red Sox Spring Training Travel

Any Boston Red Sox fan who has battled nor'easters all winter long will agree that Ft. Myers, Florida is the ideal place to thaw out. City of Palms Park (2201 Edison Ave.; phone: 239-334-4700), in Ft. Myers has been the winter home of the Red Sox since 1993. A number of nearby RV parks, including these, are perfect "home bases" for Red Sox spring training travel:

Siesta Bay RV Resort (13.4 miles from stadium)
19333 Summerlin Rd
Fort Myers, FL 33908
(239) 466-8988

Woodsmoke Camping Resort (9 miles from stadium)
19551 US Hwy 41 S
Fort Myers, FL 33908
Phone: (239) 267-3456

The official Red Sox spring training travel schedule may lead you on the road to other baseball parks around central Florida. The Minnesota Twins also play in Ft. Myers, at Hammond Stadium, and will host the Sox on March 5 and 23. Yet, the highlight of any baseball spring training trip would be seeing the Sox play the New York Yankees in Tampa (2 hours north), on March 22.

To add to your experience of Red Sox spring training, travel to the white-sand beaches of Sanibel and Captiva islands, just 30 to 40 minutes west of Ft. Myers, via the Causeway Blvd. bridge. Sanibel's beaches are known throughout the world for the quality of their seashells. The neighboring Ding Darling Wildlife Refuge is a bird-watcher's paradise and offers perfect conditions for fishing, boating, kayaking, and canoeing.
