This is a trip that my family has been excited for for a while now. We live in New Hampshire, which is kind of trapped in a corner when it comes to seeing games. Therefore, we have to get somewhat creative in our trips, which we love doing together every summer. I turn 16 in July and my dream is to see all 30 stadiums by the time I turn 20.
Anyways... In the last week of April, while my school is on April Break, we will fly out west to see games in Phoenix and Denver over the course of a week. These will be our 14th and 15th stadiums together. We were surprised that the schedule worked perfectly the way it did! We will fly into Phoenix on the 26th of April and spend that day sightseeing. Sunday afternoon we will see the D-Backs play the Phillies for Stadium #14. On Day 3, we will drive north and spend the day in beautiful Sedona, Arizona before driving to the Grand Canyon. Tuesday will be spent entirely at the Grand Canyon, which I hear is much more incredible in person than in any picture. Wednesday has been dubbed 'The Driving Day.' We will drive 4 hours from the Canyon to Four Corners Monument, and then 3 more hours to Moab, Utah. Thursday will be spent at Arches National Park, and then we will spend the night in Grand Junction, Colorado. Friday we will drive into Denver, but first, we will go zip lining in Vail, Colorado. We will see the Mets @ the Rockies on Saturday May 3rd for Stadium #15. Finally, we will fly back to New England on Sunday.
I think the thing that most excites me about the trip is in addition to seeing two stadiums and two National Parks, we will be visiting two distinctly different parts of the country, from the desert to the mountains. Has anybody else on the site done this trip? It is not even listed as an option on either team's guide, so I was confused. Finally does anybody have any tips about either city and/or stadium?
Thanks all and happy chasing!
