It's that time of year...start thinking about taking the family to Jupiter, Florida for Spring Training!
You know you want to go!
For more information on the hotel, including their sparkling swimming pool, check out their website .Click HERE
Wouldn't this be fun to receive as a Christmas gift or Hanukkah present?
Why Plan Your Own Trip? You could call a travel agency and go with a packaged tour, but if you put together your own tour you can save money and also do more things. Most of the tours start after the games start.
One fun time to go is the week before the games start. Fans are allowed to get up close and personal with the players. You can go to the practice fields and watch them work out.
For art lovers there is Jupiter Florida's "Arti Gras" held Feb. 15, 16, and 17 just across from Roger Dean Stadium. Check out the Cardinals practicing then go over to Arti Gras for booths and food.
March 8th at the Jupiter Maltz Theatre: "Yesterday: A Tribute to the Beatles"- http://www.pbglifestyle.com/events/yesterday-a-tribute-to-the-beatles/
March 18-31 "The King and I" at Jupiter Maltz Theatre.
There are great places to drive to: Shopping in Delray Beach, Shopping and Dining City Place in Palm Beach, among other places, or just ask at the front desk for a ride to nearby Juno Beach and relax in the sun.
