What's awesome about baseball tours is that you get to follow your favorite team on the road while hitting new sceneries to explore. Before watching the big game, you might venture the local touristy areas of the state or county. Here's where you will go for the next tourney. And according to Travel and Leisure, you pretty much don't need a car for that matter.
New York City. The Big Apple is home to the Yankees and the Mets. Both the Yankee Stadium and Citi Field are easily accessible by any transportation there is. Just be mindful of the traffic, though. If you're going to the Bronx for the Yankees, you can go to Belmont, Arthur Avenue or popularly known as the "Little Italy of Bron." And there, you can roam around the unique scenery and eat great cuisines. You can also check out New York Botanical Gardens, City Island, music Morrisania neighborhood, and much more. If you're at Mets, take a tour of Queens' museums like the Museum of Modern Art or New York Hall of Science.
Seattle. Home of the Mariners. If you have time before heading to the Safeco Field Stadium, you can head to the Tillicum Village, a rather famous visitor tourism with scenic cruise, gallery visits, food galore and village dancers. You can also go to the Paramount Theater to see any events going on and join the show. There's also the Woodland Park Zoo, which consists of over 300 animals, summer concerts, food establishments and vintage carousels. There are a bunch of museums to visit as well.
Cleveland. The Cleveland Indians have their home base here. If you want a day at the downtown area, don't miss the top attractions there like the Cleveland Arcade, Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and the Playhouse Square. The Severance Hall in the University Circle proves to be a great stop if you're heading there by the summer as you get to listen to different outdoor music festivals. In Cleveland, you can find so many good foods around the area that you'll be full by the time you head back to the Progressive Field.
Chicago. Before watching the Cubs out to play, go and venture out to the Windy City and see the Millennium Park. That's enough for a day of sightseeing before the big game. You have the Lurie Garden, McCormick Tribune Plaza & Ice Rink and Park Grill, Harris Theater and the McDonald's Cycle Center for an indoor bike park. If you have more time, you can go to the Skydeck, Willis Tower, or John Hancock Center for a view of the city skyline.
San Diego. Seeing the Padres play at the Petco Park a dream come true? Because of your excitement, you went ahead of time, and now, you have so many hours to spare. So why not go to Richard Walker's Pancake House? According to the Fortune, "It is a place to start your day with huge portions of breakfast specialties, worth waiting in line for." The Liberty Public Market is also where you can chow down your favorite seafood dishes all rolled into one. At the end of the day, the city has tons of gardens, museums, and bars where you can just hang out.
