Wednesday, June 24 – You may arrive at our hotel to check-in anytime after 3:00 p.m. The hotel offers free shuttle service from the airport. We will be staying here for the first of three consecutive nights.
Thursday, June 25 – As of today, the Pirates/Nationals game does not have an official start time. However, it doesn’t matter because this will not affect our schedule. If the game is in the afternoon, we will have free time at the National Mall after. If the game is in the evening, we will simply visit the National Mall prior to the game. In addition to parking next to the Lincoln Memorial, we will be extremely close to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Korean War Memorial, and many other famous must-see landmarks. Our hotel is a little over 30 miles from the ball park so there won’t be a lot of riding on the bus this day.
Friday, June 26 – We will depart later this morning for a guided tour of Oriole Park at Camden Yards, which is less than 10 miles from our hotel. I have toured many ball parks in 18 years of running these tours and this one is my favorite. After the tour, we will drop the group off less than a mile away at the Baltimore Harbor for free time for lunch/sightseeing. Before we return to Oriole Park, we will make a stop at the Babe Ruth Birthplace and Museum, which is nearby. After the Tigers/Orioles game, we will return a short distance to our hotel.
Saturday, June 27 – The D’Backs/Phillies game starts at 4:10 this afternoon. There will be time to spend a couple of hours at the “Old City” in Philadelphia prior to the game. You will have free time near Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, and Betsy Ross House. After the game, we will travel about 90 miles to our hotel up the road in Newark, New Jersey.
Sunday, June 28 -As of today, the Cubs/Yankees game does not have an official start time. I am going to guess it will be the ESPN Sunday night game. If it is, we will take a guided tour of Manhattan (Part I) during the day and get to Yankee Stadium around 5:00 p.m. If it happens to be a day game, we will take our guided tour from after the game until 9:30. Martha, our tour guide, will show you the highlights of the city and there will be opportunities to get off the bus during the tour to explore and take photos. She will give you recommendations of things to do tomorrow during your free day and will highlight some of the things she will show you on Tuesday, after your free day Monday. Then we will check into our hotel near Times Square for the first of two nights in a row.
Monday, June 29 – Our hotel is in an ideal location in Manhattan. We are next to Times Square, only two short blocks from the Empire State Building, Central Park is a bit North, and 3 miles South is the Freedom Tower and view of the Statue of Liberty. You can’t ask for a better location for your free day. If you want to attend a Broadway Play, you can. If you want to make your way up the Statue of Liberty, you can. Want to visit the 9/11 Museum? You have plenty of time to do it. Whatever you want to do, you can do it from a convenient location near the center of all the action in Manhattan.
Tuesday, June 30 – We will continue our guided tour of New York City (Part II) with Martha at 11:00 a.m. and arrive at Citi Field by 6:00. There will be stops for a late lunch, sightseeing, and photo opportunities off the motor coach. She will meet us at our hotel that morning and stay with us until we depart the bus for the Giants/Mets game.
Wednesday, July 1 – Today we will travel about 150 miles from our hotel in Milford, Connecticut to Boston. There will be free time for a late lunch at Faneuil Hall Marketplace. You will have time to shop, explore, and have a wide variety of meals (perhaps at Cheers?) for a late lunch. After your free afternoon in Boston, we will travel a few miles to Fenway Park. We will travel about 20 miles to hour hotel in Natick after the game.
Thursday, July 2 – We will depart our hotel later this morning and travel for a day of sightseeing in the Village of Cooperstown. In addition to visiting the Baseball Hall of Fame, you will have time to visit Doubleday Field, all of the baseball themed shops, and have time for an evening meal. After leaving Cooperstown, we will travel less than 100 miles to our hotel in Syracuse, New York.
Friday, July 3 – We will embark from Syracuse to Cleveland on this day. Prior to arriving at Progressive Field for the Twins/Indians game, we will stop for over an hour at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. After the game, we will travel to our hotel near the Cleveland Airport.
Saturday, July 4 – Our hotel offers free shuttle service every half hour 24-hours each day. Travel back home in time for Fourth of July festivities (or stay another night if you choose) and tell your friends all about the experience of a lifetime!Tour #1 Registration Form
