I've been working on the details of this trip.  I know where I'm going to be when and how long it is going to take to get to each park.  What I am still working on is where I'm going to stay when.  If you know any good places to stay in any of these cities or anywhere between them send me an email at Baseballdreamin45@yahoo.com.  Here is where I will be on game day and the finer details of the trip.  If you would like to come along or meet me for a game let me know as soon as you know!

My Marlins game is the day after. Sorry.

Comment by Ed Ferbel on March 6, 2012 at 11:50am

I will be at the Marlins game and also the next night, lets be in touch as its nears maybe we can hook up

You might have been lucky and got a great deal, I went up for New Year's Eve and the prices were still in the mid $200's. The game he is going to is at 2 pm, so nothing will be closed yet, it's just a matter of researching. Everything depends on when you are staying there too; if you stay Thursday night you will get a better deal. I would stay somewhere reasonable Thursday night and bite the bullet and pay to park somewhere, then just head towards Philly and get a cheaper hotel after the game on Friday afternoon.

I apologize for the Hotel Commonwealth suggestion. I stayed there a few times last year at a great rate.  But apparently their rates have jumped or I got very lucky.  That being said, you need to be very selective in terms of staying outside Boston.  Commuter Rail / subway don't run very late so you may be out of luck with a long game (been there when the subway closed before the game ended).  And driving in is very expensive ($35 for a game)

Comment by Bill Pritchard (29) on March 1, 2012 at 3:23pm

RJ if you are on a budget don't go to the Commonwealth in Boston. It's one of the nicer places in Boston but it is really expensive, especially during baseball season (Cheapest room is $450+ right now). The place I'm staying offers a 10% military discount, but it is only when the hotel is less than 70% occupied. Look to stay outside of the city for a reasonable rate.

Definitely agree with the previous poster about Amtrak between Boston and DC. You do not want to be driving and you will save a lot of money. Buy the tickets ahead of time.  Unless you are taking your own car.  For a hotel in DC, look at the Americana hotel in Arlington. Cheap but very convenient and its what you need...For Boston, look at the Hotel Commonwealth down the street from Fenway.

Hi I live in Houston and can give tips on where to stay and what to eat while your here. Be prepared if your driving the trip from KC to Dallas might be the most boring on the planet. I stayed in the Hotel Helix while in DC it was nice but quirky. More importantly it fit the budget which is hard to do there. I also I would recommend Amtrak while in between DC and Boston.

Will likely be at the Marlins game but my tickets might be for the day after.

Comment by Scott Heaton (12) on February 18, 2012 at 8:15am

This is great!  I can let you know closer to the time, depending on work, I might be able to meet you at Yankee Stadium on April 15th.  I live about half an hour away in NJ, and you will come past me on the Turpike to go down to Washington.  I assume you will use the 16th as a travel day from NY to Washington.  I'll stay in touch with you.....as the 15th is an afternoon game, we can go out to eat by me or we can put the grill on for some skirt steak!


While you are out this way, you should check out the Yogi Berra Museum in Montclair, NJ.  You would come out this way anyway to get to DC!
