I will be taking a road trip this summer in August from NYC to San Diego, where I will be finishing this fall at SDSU. Two of my buddies (one of which I have been tight with since real little) are moving to SD with me and weve planned the following stops.
Here is the itinerary we've worked out including approx. driving times and ticket prices for the teams that had information for those particular games available:
Aug. 9th Braves v. Mets – 12:10 PM ($17) **Drive to Philly (1h45m)
Aug 9th Marlins v. Phillies – 7:10 PM ($16) **Drive to Balt. (2h)
Aug 10th Red Sox v. Orioles – 7:10 PM ($18) **Drive to Cleveland (6h30m)
Aug 11th Yanks v. Indians – 7:05 PM () ** Drive to Detroit (2h45m)
Aug 12th A’s v. Tigers – 1:05 PM ($15) ** Drive to Chicago (4h30m)
Aug 13th (No Games, chillen in Chicago or w/e)
Aug 14th Reds v. Cubs – 7:05 PM ($19) **Drive to Milwaukee (1h45m)
Aug. 15th Cardinals v. Brewers 7:05 PM ()
Aug 16th-19th Bummin around the Midwest, minor league games etc.
Aug 20th – Pirates v. Rockies 7:05 PM ($9) **Drive to San Fran. ([18h] This
one is rough, we have to haul ass from Colorado to SF if we wanna do this. 1,065 miles in one day.)**
Aug 21st – Cubs v. Giants **Drive to Anaheim (6h20m) 7:15 PM
Aug 22nd – Angels v. Yanks 7:05 PM ($12) **Drive to San Diego (‘bout 2 hours or so)
I have never been to any of these cities for a significant amount of time aside from NY and SD. Any tips or suggestions of places to see (especially bars to go to) on this trip would be greatly appreciated. Particularly I'm looking for ideas for our free day in Chicago (8/13) and cool places to go to for minor lg. games between Milwaukee and Denver (8/16-8/19).
Any and all feedback is appreciated.
