    Default Baseball teams and more


    Between LA and Kentucky horse country there is a total of 5 ballparks where you can see a major league game.

    2 in the Los Angeles area - Angels and Dodgers
    1 in Dallas - Rangers
    1 in Kansas City - Royals
    1 in St. Louis - Cardinals

    You can take the souther route through Dallas, or the northern route through Kansas City. So you could reasonably expect to see at most 3 or 4 games, but at least you have some choices.

    A little research will show you who is playing at home during your trip so you can get good seats well in advance.

    There are a couple of really good historical spots in the area as well: Fort Boonesborough, Old Fort Harrod and Shaker Village on Pleasant Hill. They each tell interesting stories about the early days on the frontier in America.

    The area is also famous for its bourbon whiskey. There are several distilleries in the area. Maker's Mark is a charming, small family operation that makes one of the best products.

    Of course, between LA and KY there are lots of other great places to see. Let us know if you need suggestions.

    Happy horsing around. (sorry, couldn't help myself)

    I've been to the ballpark at Arlington (Texas Rangers) and had a great time. The all-round atmosphere was great, the viewing was really good, and the staff were really friendly. Have a read of my field report for other ideas of things to do in that area. I also visited Dodgers Park last summer but sadly not for a game. Looked like it'd be a great place to end your trip though...

    Where will you be coming from and what sort of thing will you be looking to see/do on your trip?
