A Spring Training travel guide - from 'insiders'

Thinking about a vacation this month?

Put down the Frommer's. Nobody knows the Cactus and Grapefruit hot spots better than the players who spend a month each year eating, hotel-ing, golfing and occasionally playing a little ball.

Shane Victorino, for instance, says that the Braves' facility in Orlando is the spot to be if you're into Mickey and Minnie. In Arizona, Matt Kemp claims the atmosphere of Scottsdale Stadium is unmatched.

Check out the full guide -- complete wth Justin Verlander's favorite steakhouse and Kemp's recommendation for "bomb mac and cheese" -- right here.
