If You Go ...
Goodyear is located in the southwest corner of Phoenix, on the south side of I-10.
Goodyear is a mix of corporate outposts, housing and new retail and hotels. Most Ohio baseball fans making the trip will want to focus on staying at one of the newer hotels on South Estrella Parkway; in addition, there's a wide variety of restaurants and grocery stores between I-10 and Van Buren. There's currently nothing next to the ballpark, but an entertainment complex is planned next to the ballpark. In addition, there's a ton of retail and hotels in neighboring Avondale to the east and Phoenix to the northeast. Of course, Cincinnati will be sharing the Goodyear ballpark with the Indians, so there will be a game at the ballpark daily.
Phoenix is a hub of spring-training activity, and fans can check out other teams in the area, including the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (Tempe), Los Angeles Dodgers and Chicago White Sox (Glendale), Seattle Mariners and San Diego Padres (Peoria), Kansas City Royals and Texas Rangers (Surprise), Chicago Cubs (Mesa), Milwaukee Brewers (Phoenix), Oakland Athletics (Phoenix) and San Francisco Giants (Scottsdale). Two teams train 110 miles away in Tucson: Colorado and Arizona. You could easily stay in the western part of Phoenix: the Glendale, Peoria and Surprise ballparks are located just off I-10 and I-101.
Flying In: Phoenix International Airport is your best bet. It's a huge airport with two terminals (if you're meeting some, you should plan ahead to make sure you meet in the correct concourse).
