We went to some spring training games when we lived in AZ and liked them a lot. Now we live in Tulsa OK and are thinking about going to some next spring. I'm thinking I should pick a spot and inquire about reservations soon to get a good spot.
If I plan it right we can " kill three birds with one stone".
1. Go see the kids/grandkids in the FL panhandle, Crestview.
2. Go see the Daytona 500. I've wanted to see the race for years.
3. Stay in the area for some spring training baseball. It starts the same weekend as the race.
Most of the teams I follow train in AZ, so location close to a particular team doesn't matter. Looks like most teams are based on the Gulf coast.
What I'm looking for is a nice 55+ park...not trashy but doesn't cost a fortune. Good fishing spots and good low to moderate cost restaurants would be a plus.
Where is the best place to "base camp" and not spend all our time driving to see things?
Do some of you go to FL for spring training? Where, and have you tried different locations?
