Baseball, History of America’s Pastime: Part II

Overview

Yankee Stadium, Fenway Park, Cooperstown, Hoboken, Polo Grounds site

Details

This is a great itinerary. The tickets for both games are excellent, and if you have never spent time at the Otesaga Hotel in Cooperstown, you have missed one of life's great experiences. It isn't an inexpensive trip, as Boston and New York are not cheap destinations. In addition to the Cooperstown stay, we have a special presentation at the Hall of Fame, a hotel within walking distance of Yankee Stadium, a visit to the brand new Jackie Robinson Museum and tours of Yankee Stadium and Fenway Park.
