Baseball season is officially under way — a sure (and welcome) sign of summer.
If you’re a baseball fan, you’ve probably been to plenty of home games, but have you ever followed your team to root for them on the road? They need some friendly voices in the crowd, so you can accomplish two things by taking a trip to a new ball park. Support your team at the game – and then explore a new city.
After you check the schedule, decide where to go, and buy a ticket, you can start planning your trip. Hotels, restaurants, highlights, night life? Even if you’re an avid fan, this trip is not just about baseball. These out-of-town ballparks are in diverse cities you might not otherwise visit. Spend a day or two before or after the game, see the sights, sample local specialties and regional foods, and get to know a new town.
No need to rent a car or figure out directions or parking, because most parks offer convenient transportation. Just remember to pack your team’s colors and be ready to cheer them on.
