PHOENIX — There's no question as to why people flock to Arizona this time of year. The weather is beautiful (and much warmer than other parts of the country) and there is no lack of things to do.
The biggest draw has to be the Cactus League spring training. Fans from all over come to celebrate the return of baseball and catch their favorite of the 15 teams in the league.
During this tourism prime-time, hotel rooms fill quickly and those that are available are not cheap. Plus, if you're looking for a really unique experience, like staying a shipping container, then the hotel route is not for you.
