Triple Crown’s Arizona Spring Championships begins the first of four sessions on Wednesday, March 3 and will welcome hundreds of teams to the Phoenix metro area by the time the final trophies are handed out March 21. There are many things to do when you get a break from the fields.
First up is, of course, MLB Spring Training. The TCS event is formatted to allow space in the day to check out the action as MLB players ramp up for the season ahead. Attendance restrictions vary from team to team.

ATV Guided Tour
Hop on your own ATV on this off-roading adventure in the Sonoran Desert. After a safety briefing and training, gear up and ride across rugged, rocky trails in the scenic Bradshaw Mountains, as well as cross the Agua Fria River.

Fun, fine dining
Phoenix draws from a variety of cultures, so it makes sense you can find some amazing options when it comes to breakfast, lunch and dinner. Much of the Spring Championships takes place in Scottsdale, where you’ll find an intoxicating mix of food options.
