Named one of Money Magazine's best places to live, it's easy to see why people are flocking to this Spring Training host city, Goodyear, Arizona.

Averaging 296 sunny days a year, Goodyear is a stunning desert city with two man-made lakes and the nearby Gila River to help beat the Arizona heat. Sports fans can enjoy ballgames at the renowned Goodyear Ballpark, the Spring Training home of the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Guardians, and golf aficionados can tee off on one of the country's best public courses.

Take me out to the ball game (in Goodyear)

The Goodyear Ballpark is a state-of-the-art spring training facility that plays host to two of Major League Baseball's most storied franchises, the Cincinnati Reds and Cleveland Guardians. Even if you're not an Ohio baseball fan, the stadium's lawn is the perfect place to spend a sunny spring day—just don't forget the sunscreen! After the pros have packed it up each year, this Goodyear, Ariz. attraction is home to a variety of events like food truck festivals, concerts, movie nights, car shows, and holiday celebrations.

An outdoor playground

Estrella Mountain Regional Park offers 33-plus miles of paths and trails, perfect for all kinds of outdoor activities in Goodyear from light walks to challenging bike rides. Both the Rainbow Valley and Baseline trails offer lush green trees, picnic tables, wetlands and beautiful desert views, while the short Gila trail is considered wheelchair-friendly and accessible without sacrificing the desert views. The city also boasts two man-made lakes (North and South Lake) where visitors can rent kayaks and paddleboards to experience the desert from a truly unique vantage point.

Tee it up

The Golf Club of Estrella, a Nicklaus Design golf course and Troon-managed facility, offers a truly incredible experience for golfers of all abilities. Nestled in the master-planned community of Estrella, this desert golf course features challenging play amid breathtaking beauty. The Sonoran Desert surrounds you as you traverse the foothills of the Sierra Estrella Mountain range, and the large greens and split-level fairways test your decision-making, club selection and course management skills.

The Wild West

There are plenty of ways to experience the Sonoran Desert, but the magic of the region really comes to life on a horseback ride through the Estrella Mountains. Visitors seeking unique things to do in Goodyear can saddle up with one of the city's outfitters, such as Corral West Adventures, and enjoy a guided sunset ride followed by a cowboy cookout, complete with marshmallows roasted over an open fire.
