This past weekend I went out to Phoenix to catch some spring training. It was a tough drive since I was going out to the Grand Canyon first. That was a seven-hour drive and on three hours sleep.
But wow the Grand Canyon is gorgeous. I’ve been to the Hoover Dam part before but going to the South Rim and seeing all of that was amazing! I was breathless, even though I was super tired.
Then the rest of the night was just to get back to the Phoenix area, get some Lo-Lo’s (yes, oh that place again!) before heading to crash.
The next two nights had me go to Peoria to see the Indians vs Padres. That park is really nice. It was great to sit, relax and just soak up some Indians baseball. The next game the day after was the A’s and Cubs. Hohokam was really nice. Way better than Phoenix Municipal. It was a simple park and I really liked it because it still looked really fancy and up to date modern.
What made this trip also great was that I went back to the places that I had eaten before for fun. Not only did we do Lo-Lol’s, but we also did Matt’s Big Breakfast and Haus Murphy’s. I made multiple trips to Cracker Barrel too.
Honestly, I want to go back next year and try out new food places. See the A’s at home and get a game in at Goodyear. That I must!
