9. Getting around

Although Sarasota's Main Street area and St. Armand¿s Circle are great for strolling, you'll want to rent a car if you're planning on going to any of the other Grapefruit League ballparks. Of the west coast ballparks, Bradenton is the closest to Sarasota, about 15 minutes; Fort Myers (JetBlue Park, above) is the farthest at about 90 minutes; and Dunedin and Tampa are about an hour away. Bring your patience, too. Traffic is congested and moves slowly. Leon Halip, Getty Images
