Although spring training is huge draw for Arizona golf communities, not everyone wants to spend hours and days at the games. The question is: what to do outside the ballpark, after the game, or for those out of town guests who aren’t big sports fans? The Valley offers a ton of things to do during spring training season. From the beautiful scenic landscape of the Grand Canyon, to world-class shopping and dining, there’s really something for everyone to do this time of year.
Leave the baseball fans at the game and go for hike. If you really want to enjoy and show off the beauty of the Arizona landscape to your guests, take them for a hike at South Mountain Park or a bike ride along Scottsdale’s 13-mile greenbelt off of Hayden. The Valley’s surrounding mountains boast a variety of trails for beginners and young family members up to experts looking for a challenge.
Looking for a little more excitement? There are a variety of jeep tours that will definitely satisfy your thirst. Be ready to be amazed by Arizona’s wildlife right in its own natural habitat. Or, enjoy a beautiful hot-air balloon ride over the Sonoran Desert in Phoenix or Scottsdale. You choose whether you prefer sunrise or sunset and let the view take your breath away. Truly a one of a kind experience!
You can also treat your out of town guests to an authentic western experience. Go back in time before we drove our cars across the Valley and experience the desert via horseback riding. Explore Arizona’s splendors Old West-style!
Of course, there’s always a good golf game to be had in the Valley, too. We’re known for our top notch golf courses and you can find a variety of golf clubs and Arizona golf course communities that feature amazing scenic views, relaxing lifestyles, and private amenities. Kierland, McCormick Ranch and Grayhawk make playing fun and easy for tourists while staying central and close to the action of spring training games, shopping, and dining.
Besides the beautiful Arizona weather and scenery, Phoenix and Scottsdale are a shopper’s paradise. From antique shops to luxury malls, your guests will easily find what they’re looking for. The Biltmore, Kierland, and Scottsdale Quarter feature outdoor pathways and sunshine between shops, while Scottsdale Fashion Square is a more traditional interior mall with big names like Barney’s, Nordstrom, and Neiman Marcus along with a slew of designer boutiques. This could be a draw for those out-of-towners who may not have access to such stores back home.
