Where to go to MLB Spring Training in Southwest Florida

  • Posted on

Major League Baseball has a long history of Spring Training in Southwest Florida and many of the guests in our luxury Naples Florida rental homes try to catch a game when they visit.

Our state boasts a plethora of state-of-the-art stadiums and training complexes, providing players with top-notch facilities to prepare for the upcoming season. Additionally, Florida's mild climate offers ideal conditions for baseball, with sunny skies and warm temperatures prevailing throughout the spring months.

Here in Naples, we are lucky to be so close to many of these state-of-the-art facilities. JetBlue Park, winter home of the Boston Red Sox is an easy 40 minute drive up US 41. The Minnesota Twins training facility, Hammond Stadium, is also in Fort Myers and a quick 45 minute drive away. Braves fans? CoolToday Park, winter home of the Atlanta Braves, is just a hour and a half north in North Port.

We suggest that, no matter which team you root for, that you make it a day trip and explore the area around the stadium. If you are a guest in one of our Naples rentals, please reach out and tell us where you want to visit so we can provide personalized recommendations.
