Take me AWAY to the Ball Game!

May 19, 2016

 

Baseball - America's Favorite Pastime. Even if you are not a sports enthusiast a trip to the ball park is always a fun time! Good food, happy people, and entertainment for the whole family. Although the age old-saying is to "Root, Root, Root, for the Home Team," sometimes it's nice to get away.

 

Traveling for baseball is a great way to experience a new city. First, every stadium is different and typically offers an experience unique to that city. Secondly, as most games are in the evening, you will have most of the day free to tour the host city. At game time, you can ditch the tourists because you'll probably be seated near locals. Lastly, as the season runs April through October, more than likely you are going to get some great weather!
