Our family has recently discovered how much fun major league baseball can be as an addition to our family vacations. Baseball games are relatively inexpensive as far as Big City Attractions go…. so, through the years, as we have visited New York City, Saint Louis, Cincinnati, Atlanta, and San Francisco, we have incorporated major league baseball into our family vacation.
We have visited many of the major league baseball fields throughout the USA as a family….. and it is one of the most family friendly things to do on a vacation….
Its fun to combine baseball into a trip to a major US city. History and Education are usually a bug part of our trips, but taking in a baseball game is a great way to have some fun along the way! Our kids love grabbing a t-shirt or baseball cap from the local team and prepping for the game.
Now that our kids are older, my husband and son are taking of on their own in a father / son baseball trip every year…. I think that it is really the highlight of their summer…. I describe it in more detail below…
A New Tradition – Father / Son Major League Baseball Vacation Trips
We have a new tradition in our family now… during the summer, my husband and son take off on a week long guys trip. They travel with another father / son duo, and hit up to four major league baseball fields during the trip. Another great bonus of the trip is a tour of the “Diners / Drive-ins / Dives” favorites along the way…
Another added benefit of the trip is touring some historical presidential homes along the way…. my husband is a history buff, and loves that part of it as much as the baseball.
