    Chicago, Detroit, New York, and Boston!

    In about 2 weeks I will be on my way to my summer adventure. It started out as a road trip plan but got shortened. My friend Ada and I were going to go on a baseball road trip trying to hit up as many baseball games as we could but we didn't have the time or money to be able to go all the places that we wanted so we focused in on 4 cities with historic fields. On June 26 we will leave OC and fly to Chicago, that night we are seeing a baseball game at Wrigley Field. The next night we're gonna go see Wicked!! WOOHOO!! We fly out to Detroit the next morning. In Detroit we plan to see the Tigers play, I forget what night, and run around with my friend and my cousin that live out there. We fly to NYC on July 1. We have a game planned, again I forget what night. July 4 we will be in Boston for the day to see a game at Fenway Park but will fly back to NYC that night. We spend one more day in NYC and then fly back to Cali!

    It's going to be a whirlwind trip and if you all have any suggestions for places to visit, eat, shop, etc, I'd really appreciate it!!

    Thanks!

    I'm jealous! What fun!!

    I was in Boston earlier this season and saw a game at Fenway. Be sure to go early and spend some time on Yawkey Way.

    Awesome! Good luck to you! There's nothing better than baseball in summer, especially when you get to experience those ballparks!

    I start mine in August, with 13 games in 16 days...all driving!

    You'll love Comerica Park in Detroit. They have a baseball ferris wheel (the cars are shaped like baseballs) and a carousel that has tigers instead of horses. The food is pretty good too. Across the street is Ford Field (where the Lions play). The Fox Theatre and the Hockeytown restaurant are there too.

    I'm so pathetic.... I grew up in Michigan but the only thing we ever did in Detroit was go to Tiger games!

    I actually went to Detroit last summer too and Comerica Park is nice....the part that freaked me out was all the homeless people hanging around the stadium!

    Not sure how much time you will actually have in Boston, since you only said you'd be here for the day. But 4th of July is a pretty big holiday here the the Boston Pops are playing at the Hatch Shell on the Charles River Esplanade along with other free concerts throughout the day ending with a fantastic fireworks display. Also if you a history buff, from the balcony of the old MA statehouse, where the Declaration of Independence was first read, they reinact that on the 4th. Or you may enjoy the Duck Tour or a walking tour of the city which hits many of highlights of the city. Yawkey Way is fun if your taking in a game at Fenway as someone mentioned already.

    Again not knowing how much time you will be in Boston if you need restaurant suggestions let me know.

    I've only been to Comerica Park once (6 years ago). I grew up going to Tiger Stadium. Lots of homeless people were around there too. They're trying to clean up Detroit but they still got a long way to go.

    We'll definitely try to hit up all those places if we can. Ground Zero is a must see for me especially since 9-11 is my birthday!

    New York:
    Central Park - Just walk around and get lost. At the baseball fields (at about 61st, I think) on Thursdays you can see the crew and the cast members of most broadway shows play against other shows.

    Best Deli- Katz's deli- this is where the scene from When Harry Meet Sally takes place where she shows him "something" WARNING: when you walk in they hand you a ticket, even small children get one. If you loose this ticket it is a $50 charge and that does not include the price of the meal, which is costly.

    World of Disney- go to the 2nd floor and make a Mr. Potato head.

    Top of the Rock- Instead of the Empire State Building (which can be a HUGE wait) this is a little cheaper and it just went through a renovation. When you are going in the elevator to the top you see the elevator shaft and they make it like a ride.

    WTC site- just because everyone should see what happened. It is a big construction project right now. There is a museum (which is a donation of $10) that shows alot of details that I had never heard. It was very moving.
