VIDEO: Great Baseball City Vacations

Great Baseball City Vacations
Many of America's great cities are home to the country's best baseball stadiums. At, we've picked three stadiums where you can catch a game and then enjoy all that the cities have to offer.

Safeco Field in the heart of Seattle hosted its inaugural game in 1999, showing off views of Mount Rainier, Seattle's business district, and the Puget Sound. After the game, stop by Pike Place Market to see the original Starbucks and the Fish Company's famous fish-throwers.

You either hate the Yanks or love them, but Yankee Stadium in New York City is certainly a top place to experience American's favorite pastime. The new stadium cost the richest team in baseball around $1.5 billion, so the price tag alone makes it worth seeing. Of course, outside of sports, New York City has it all. Go shopping, see world-class art, or relax in Central Park!

Fenway Park, built in in Boston in 1912, is the granddaddy of all baseball stadiums. Bostonians are fiercely loyal to their park so instead of building a new one, the Red Sox just add more seats, like on the famous Green Monster wall. While you're in Boston, check out the city's wealth of other sites, like the historic Freedom Trail and the new Liberty Wharf on the waterfront.

So grab your suitcase, and pack your peanuts and Cracker Jacks, then head out to the old ball game!
