Here’s a trend the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels need to jump on. Another Florida minor league baseball team is already is. The Pensacola Blue Wahoos have listed their stadium on Airbnb for a modest $5,143 a night. The price includes up to 10 people and as far as what can you do? Well, just about anything goes.
According to their listing “Want to hit with your friends in our batting cage? Be our guest! Want to play catch on the field at 11:30 PM? Be our guest! Want to take batting practice while having a couple cold ones with the boys? Be our guest! Want to take down your siblings in ping pong and video games in the clubhouse? Be our guest! Want to enjoy breakfast at home plate? Be our guest!”
The price listed includes up to 10 guests sharing a bedroom with 2 queen beds and 4 bunk beds. You’ll have full access to the clubhouse, lounge, the field, whatever. They also keep a staff member on call in case you need something. My take would be to throw your own victory celebration in the clubhouse. You’ll probably be hit with a cleaning surcharge. But worth it.
There’s a kitchenette if you feel like making a snack, but I’d hit up their catering package. No reason to stay at a ballpark unless you’re knocking back brews and hot dogs. And don’t forget the merch.

So how popular is this? The Blue Wahoos first listed their Minor League Baseball stadium on Airbnb back in 2020 for $1,500 a night and it sold out quickly. Now it’s more than $5,000 a night. Inflation, I guess.
