openingdayIf you like baseball you already know that Spring Training is an awesome time to catch your favorite teams (yes, pun intended) in action, and it can make for one really fun family road trip.  A—you most likely get to visit a warm location.  B—you can get closer to your favorite players than you can during a regular season game when the team is playing in a giant stadium. 

Well, the InterContinental Tampa is offering a Spring Training Package that might make this kind of trip a little easier on the wallet if you want to see a team that warms up in the Tampa area.  InterContinental Tampa has the home field advantage, being conveniently located to all the fan-favorites including the New York Yankees, Philadelphia Phillies and the Toronto Blue Jays.

The package includes 20 percent discount off  the best available rate for deluxe accommodations (rates begin at $151 per night), a Fan Tool Kit, complete with  a baseball for signing, Cracker Jacks, peanuts, popcorn, bubble gum, soda, and the lyrics and history of the song, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.”

The deal is good from Feb.29-Apr.4, 2012

If not everyone in the family is a baseball fan they’ll still enjoy the getaway. There’s a rooftop pool offering views of the bay and city; a state-of-the-art fitness center; and on-site dining at the world-famous Shula’s Steak House.
