Watch the Final Pitch in These Cities

October 25, 2015 | Permalink

Baseball fans rejoice! The most exciting time of the year is here… the World Series is the few weeks that every true fan lives for each year. And if you're an honest baseball aficionado (or even just friends with one!) you've probably already started planning where to watch this year's big World Series games. But this year, why not go for more than just a game on TV? Have you thought of planning a trip to tour some of the best baseball cities in the country? We've tried to make the job a little easier by narrowing down the list with these three must-see stadiums. If you’re the kind of fan who would plan a vacation solely in honor of America’s favorite pastime, book that hotel room now and hit the road!

Yankee Stadium in New York
In this case, we've saved the best for first! New York's Yankee Stadium is one of the most beautiful baseball stadiums in the country. Whether you're an avid baseball fan or just on a family vacation in New York, a visit or a guided tour at the famed Yankee Stadium has something for everyone. And after you get your fill of the stadium, a favorite hot spot is The Yankee Tavern — a classic joint in the Bronx that, while decorated with the baseball team's paraphernalia, is celebrated for making a mean cocktail. And for those who aren't the biggest fans of baseball? Don't worry, the city offers plenty of other options once your favorite fan gets their fill of dugouts and bases.

Angels Stadium in California
If you’re hanging out on the Golden Coast, be sure to check out the Angels Stadium in Anaheim, California. Nicknamed "The Big A," the set of the hit film "Angels in the Outfield" has a seating capacity of nearly 46,000. It's also known for the many historic moments in baseball that took place there: you and your family will be able to stand in the same place where Nolan Jackson struck out nine Red Sox players in a row and where Reggie Jackson hit his 500th home run.

Fenway Park in Boston
Last but in no means least is the iconic Fenway Park stadium in Boston, Massachusetts. One of the best baseball stadiums to visit in America, the stadium, which is now over a hundred years old, has seen some of the greatest plays, most incredible home runs and stellar historic wins (and losses!) of all time on its sprawling field. Home to the Boston Red Sox, you can take a seat in the famous "Lone Red Seat," which was created to honor the longest home run ever hit at the stadium by Ted Williams in 1946.

Whether you're a baseball fan who has collected cards and jerseys for decades, or are just looking to brush up on your knowledge of the game, a trip to New York, Anaheim or Boston will put you up close and personal with some of the most beautiful and iconic baseball stadiums in the country. Check this one off your bucket list and plan to your trip today.
