Game dates: June 21, 22, 23, 24 playing the Angels
Los Angeles is an ideal destination for those looking for action-packed family fun. Ball games are played at Angel Stadium in Anaheim, a city just outside L.A. that just so happens to also be home to Disneyland. Keep the kids happy with a day of rides and cotton candy, and then head over to Crustacean in Beverly Hills – known for its garlic noodles and crab – for delicious grown-up dining.
Game dates: July 27, 28, 29 playing the White Sox
Baseball fans: the windy city awaits. Catch a game at Guaranteed Rate Field, and then turn your attention to all the amazing culture on offer in this massive metropolis. Peruse the Art Institute of Chicago, dive into natural history at The Field Museum and explore the natural world at Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum. If wining and dining is more your speed, definitely don’t miss the world-renowned cuisine at Alinea.
Game dates: August 2, 3, 4, 5 playing the Mariners
Ground zero for grunge music and Starbucks, Seattle is a town known for its thriving café culture. After cheering the Jays on at Safeco Field, knock your vacation out of the park. Mainline some java at the Cherry Street Coffee House and take a walking tour of the tech-hub neighbourhood, South Lake Union, home to Amazon’s sprawling campus. Other must-see items on your sightseeing list? The well-stocked Elliott Bay Book Company, the view from the lookout at Kerry Park, and the Pike Place Market, naturally.
New York City
Game dates: August 17, 18, 19 playing the Yankees
Head to the Big Apple this summer to take in a game at Yankee Stadium and stay to sample the city’s electric summer vibes. Book in at the luxe Refinery Hotel, stroll Central Park and the High Line, take the train out to Brooklyn for mind-blowing baked goods and feast on Shake Shack burgers – followed, of course, by famous frozen custard – at dusk in Madison Square Park.
