With summer fast approaching, many people in the United States are searching for a place to visit this summer. One of the nicest cities in the world to visit is Miami. Miami, while known mostly by out of towners, primarily for it’s calling card of Miami Beach, has much more than beautiful beaches to offer.
Here are just a couple sporting attractions, if visiting Miami this summer.
Catch a Marlin. No not the fish
How about taking the family out to the recently built Marlins Park to catch a Miami Marlins game? The ballpark opened it’s doors in 2012 and is home to the Marlins who signed their big time superstar player Giancarlo Stanton to a massive $300 million dollar contract over the offseason. The ballpark is one of the more state of the art places to watch a professional baseball game and features a retractable roof to guarantee no delay in the action due to weather.
On the topic of fish, how about Dolphin?
This summer the professional football team Miami Dolphins will be playing at Sun Life Stadium. Like Marlins Park, the newly renovated Sun Life Stadium will give game audiences a more pleasant experience to watch a game. The Dolphins season will begin in September and with several offseason acquisitions, none bigger than defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, the Dolphins are expected to make some noise this upcoming season.
Are you looking for a place to bask in the sun? Tempe, located not far from Phoenix, Az is one of those hidden gems that offers a lot of great locations.
Of course, Tempe is home to Arizona State University Sun Devils. The University is right smack dab in the middle of the town. Because the University is not far from the heart of the town, there is a lot of great places to eat nearby. We actually stopped in and visited the university as it was named one of the nation’s best universities by “The Best 379 Colleges” magazine.
If you happen to be in town during the spring (as we were) you can catch a little Spring Training action at Diablo Stadium. Also the home of the Tempe Angels. Diablo stadium holds a capacity of 9,558 fans and highly recommend visiting this nice ball park. It’s located at 2200 W Alameda Dr.
The beautiful thing about Tempe is you’re only 10 minutes away from Phoenix, which is home to most of the professional sports team and downtown Phoenix is a nice place to hang out without the overcrowding of the typical downtown big city.
Arizona is really hot, especially during the summer months. You won’t get a lot of humidity but you’ll definitely get a lot of triple digit temperature readings. It’s important to have plenty of water so that you don’t get dehydrated and it’s just can get unbearably hot so just keep that in mind.
While our trip to Tempe, Az was not a long lasting trip, we did enjoy our time. We stayed at one of the best hotels in Tempe called the Tempe Mission Palms . It’s a really nice hotel and we got a good deal. Expect to pay somewhere in the neighborhood of $175 per night.
We hope you enjoyed our little write up on Tempe Arizona. It’s a beautiful city with a beautiful skyline of mountains and great weather. Make sure you check it out if you’re in the area for pleasure or business on your next trip.
