Casa Grande

Feeling sporty? Come to play in Casa Grande, Arizona’s Sports Central.

Right Now

Just about halfway between Phoenix and Tucson, Casa Grande draws golfers year-round, with excellent play at a variety of area clubs. The city is also home to one of the finest soccer sports training facilities in the country. For those who like more grounded athletics, try trap and skeet shooting. 

If you seek sports-star accommodations, Casa Grande’s got that covered, too. The stately and legendary Francisco Grande was built as a spring training camp for the San Francisco Giants. Its famed swimming pool and hot tub are shaped like a baseball bat and ball. The baseball theme is carried throughout the recently renovated resort, from flowerbeds to stairwells. 

Sports aren’t the only things happening in Casa Grande. Stroll through historic downtown Casa Grande, one of Arizona’s Main Street communities, with more than 40 buildings in national and local historic registers. Community events include live concerts, car shows, walking tours of historic sites, fine arts shows, fly-ins, and festivals celebrating local, regional, and American Indian cultures.
