Weekly High 5
America's favorite past time is back in full swing. Between now and early Fall, plan a getaway to see the team, and visit the city, that captures your baseball spirit. Here we share 5 of the most iconic baseball stadiums, with local resorts that can turn your trip to the game into a relaxing getaway.
#5 - AT&T Park - Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square, San Francisco
Although AT&T is one of the newer Major League Baseball stadiums, it has been home to many historic events. Giants Slugger Barry Bonds hit his 500th career home run there and later in the same year, he set the single season home run record. He also hit his 700th and 756th home runs out of this park! Fairmont Heritage Place, Ghirardelli Square is the perfect place to stay when in town for a ball game. Enjoy your garlic fries at the game and then a Ghirardelli hot fudge sundae with your $100 Ghirardelli gift card, compliments of Luxury Cruise and Vacation Experts. You will also receive a welcome chocolate amenity and breakfast daily.
#4 - Wrigley Field - The Westin Michigan Avenue, Chicago
Wrigley Field is home of the famous "called shot" by Babe Ruth, where he pointed to a bleacher location during game 3 of the 1932 World Series and hit a rocket for a huge homer! Ernie Banks hit his 500th career home run here and Pete Rose hit his 191st career homer here. Our Experts like the Westin Michigan Avenue, located on the magnificent Mile in the middle of the main shopping and dining area in Chicago. As our compliments, enjoy continental breakfast daily and a welcome fruit and water amenity.
#3 - Dodger Stadium - Terranea Resort, Los Angeles, CA
Magic Johnson and his investment group purchase the Dodgers and the excitement builds for Dodger Blue! A stay at Terranea Resort locates you close to Dodger Stadium and many other local attractions Los Angeles has to offer. Terranea Resort is dramatically poised above the Pacific on 102 acres with 270-degree oceanfront views. With its unparalleled setting and relaxed gracious service, Terranea has become one of California's premier coastal resort destinations. When you book with Luxury Cruise and Vacation Experts, you will receive breakfast daily, a $50 resort credit, and a welcome amenity.
#2 - Fenway Park - The Fairmont Copley Plaza, Boston
Historic in its own right, Fenway Park in Boston was built in 1912 and rebuilt in 1934. The first game was April 20, 1912, 100 years ago today! There is seating capacity for 37,493 at night games and 37,065 during day games. Our Experts suggest the Fairmont Copley Plaza as the place to stay while visiting Boston.

#1 - Yankee Stadium - InterContinental New York, Times Square
Yankee fan or not, Yankee Stadium is a must-see for baseball lovers. The fan experience and New York's obvious love of their team and the game, are an experience not to be missed.
