Baseball has forever been America’s game. This year marks a few milestones for our country’s favorite past time—25th anniversary of Field of Dreams, which of course struck a chord with hearts from sea to shining sea. This summer why not visit a few of the iconic teams and explore the city they call home with front row seats?
This year is the 100th anniversary of Wrigley Field, home of the infamous Chicago Cubs. Make your trip to Chicago a double header by attending both a Cubs and a White Sox game. We can round out your trip with visits to the world-class museums, private river cruises, and top-notch cuisine to rival the top restaurants around the world. Stay at your favorite luxury hotel with beautiful views of the Chicago River or Lake Michigan.
New York Yankees need no introduction; however it is not New York City’s only team, catch a Mets game during your visit as well. Let us wow you with front row tickets and behind the dugout experiences. There are many things the city has to offer depending on your interests, but if you are up for a road trip and you’re rounding third to head home, I suggest driving 4 hours upstate to Cooperstown, NY to visit the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum. This is sure to be a home run for baseball fanatics.
The Cinderella story of baseball as of late, 2013 World Series Champions Boston Red Sox call Fenway Park their home; a hot ticket this year boasting their winning team. In Boston, walk the 2.5 mile Freedom Trail discovering the rich history of the American Revolution, from the Bunker Hill Monument to Paul Revere’s House, end at the John F. Kennedy Library to research any unanswered questions about this nation’s past. We can set you up with a rowing team to try your strokes on the Charles River during your time in Boston.

There is nothing more Americana than a visit to the “Federal City” and a trip back through colonial times to discover beautiful and historically rich Virginia. Only about an hour outside of the Capital, you will find world-class wineries (Pippen Hill, Bluemont Vineyard and King Family Vineyards to name a few) offering tasty wine, excellent farm to table cuisine, stunning views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and an afternoon of polo matches (at King Family Vineyards). Downtown Charlottesville is filled with upscale restaurants, charming boutiques, and live music on the main square each Friday evening. Stay at The Clifton Inn for an Old World meets New World experience. The white clapboard Federal Style home in the heart of Jefferson County, feels as if you have stepped back in time and will shortly be joined by our Founding Fathers in the cozy bar. Venture further into the Shenandoah Valley, into Natural Chimneys Park for rigorous hiking, mountain biking, and notable fly-fishing, along with the newly created Red Wing Roots Music Festival each July (this year July 11-13, 2014) for some downhome Bluegrass tunes. On your return to Washington, leave plenty of time for a stop to explore George Washington’s Mount Vernon, enjoying their fireworks display over the Potomac River and a taste their newly finished bourbon from the renovated Distillery.
Back in DC, wander of the beaten path to discover Ethiopian food in the U Street neighborhood, sunrise paddle boarding on the river from Jack’s Boat House, and pretend you are a spy for day at the International Spy Museum. If the children are with you, they will enjoy the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American Indian (and of course the Air and Space Museum). The place to stay is The Jefferson Hotel. Located just four blocks from 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, but off the tourist route, this 99 guest room property evokes a European flair, drawn from Thomas Jefferson’s love for Paris. Extraordinary attention to detail (in the design and service to guests) creates a feeling of being a houseguest in a private home.
