Just as the game can provide a comforting escape, Florida is a perennially perfect spot for a winter getaway, especially for tennis lovers. Glorious weather and an abundance of facilities are a natural pair, and the state’s beaches, trails and national parks provide plenty of off-court adventure, too.
Crandon Park, Key Biscayne
- The Miami Open may have moved to Hard Rock Stadium, but fans nostalgic for the tournament’s Key Biscayne days can visit Crandon Park and play on one of 27 courts— yes, even the 13,800-seat stadium center court. As a city park with fees from just $5 an hour, the Crandon Tennis Center is one of the most affordable places to play, whether on its 21 Laykold hard courts or six green Har-Tru clay courts. Post-match play: The beautiful Crandon Park Beach is just steps away. Also nearby is Bill Baggs Cape State Park, home of stunning sunsets and an historic lighthouse.
