There are few things Americans can claim as our own. We’ve got apple pie, we’ve got the 4th of July, and we’ve got the wholesome sport of baseball.
This season, take a vacation to cheer on your favorite team. With vacation rentals in all the major league baseball cities like New York, Boston, and Chicago, it’s easy to find a vacation home that’s perfect for you and your group.
Get a good seat at the World Series
, and during your down time, relax in the luxury of your very own private rental. Here's our guide to the best US baseball vacations.
Hit it out of the park with Sox tickets at Fenway Park near Bean Town's Kenmore Square. Fenway Park is the oldest Major League Baseball stadium still in use and has been the home-base of the Boston Redsox since 1912. After a couple of hot dogs, some cold beer (or soda), and a healthy seventh-inning stretch – you’ll be transported right back to childhood. Share the baseball experience with kids of your own and pass on the tradition. Be sure to find the red brick Freedom trail during your trip -- that will really drive the American history theme home.
If you want to see the Yankees play, you better act fast because tickets may disappear in a New York minute. New Yorkers take their baseball very seriously (just ask a Mets fan), and after being a spectator at a true-blue Yankees game, you’ll know why. Head out to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx
for a baseball game, then check out what else the Big Apple has to offer:Broadway shows, ethnic cuisine, and shopping, shopping, shopping - from high end Madison Avenue to knock-off deals along Canal Street.
If there’s one city that knows its baseball, it’s St. Louis Missouri. Also known as the “STL” or the “Gateway to the West” St. Louis is home to Busch Stadium and the St. Louis Cardinals. Formerly Busch Memorial Stadium, the “New Busch Stadium” is certainly new and much improved, with more seating and natural grass turf, among other upgrades. See for yourself if they covered all the bases and find a St. Louis vacation rental within driving distance.
Think Chi Town’s all about the Bears? Think again. No visit to Chicago is complete without swinging by Wrigley Field, and if it’s baseball season a Cubs game should top your to-do list. Find out why the Chicago Cubs put the Windy City on the map – just like Second City comedy club, the Sears Tower and that special Chicago-style dog you’ll get to enjoy during the game. Traveler tip: Visit during the summer for the free shows in the city's famous Grant Park.
Not only does Dodger Stadium fill up during baseball season between April and October, the venue is used to host huge concerts from world headlining acts. Don’t let the glitz and glamor steer you wrong, however. Baseball games are the stadium’s bread and butter. Located in Los Angeles’ Chavez Ravine, the facility overlooks the San Gabriel Mountains. Fun fan fact: Dodger Stadium has never changed seating capacity, and any time they add new seats, they remove old ones in order to keep the number the same. Top off your L.A. vacation with shopping on Rodeo Drive or eating at a trendy West Hollywood
We hope you've enjoyed our guide to the best US baseball vacations.
