On Thursday, "I'm leaving on a Jet Plane"! (I love those lyrics.) I'm going on a trip called the Ultimate Game Day Weekend. I did this trip last year with my cousin Carol. She had a health scare this year and couldn't go. The company I travel with, Jay Buckley Baseball Tours, is a great company. They are well organized and family orientated; it makes it easy for me to travel alone.
This is what's included on the trip:
On Friday, we will journey down to Washington, DC to watch the World Series contenders Washington Nationals, led by reigning MVP Bryce Harper, take on the Philadelphia Phillies.
On Saturday, we travel to Annapolis, MD to witness one of the greatest traditions in college sports…our Naval Academy playing the University of Connecticut in football. We will enjoy a pregame tailgate and have a great location to watch the pregame traditions.
On Sunday, we will enjoy an afternoon game at the famous Yankee Stadium between the Tampa Bay Rays and New York Yankees. Afterwards, we will enjoy the sights and sounds of Times Square.
On the last day of our trip, we will spend time at Philadelphia’s Independence National Historical Park area and enjoy the many dining options of Reading Terminal Market. That night we will attend the first Monday Night Football Game of the 2016 NFL season featuring the Pittsburgh Steelers versus the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field in Landover, MD.
Included features: Included in this tour is deluxe motorcoach transportation, hotel room for Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday nights, tickets to all four games, breakfast every morning, tailgate food and beverages at the Navy game.
I'm flying into Baltimore from San Diego. It's the first time I've flown out of SD, I'll be sure to post lots of photos on Instagram and Facebook, and do a post on the blog when I get home. This time, instead of boarding the dogs, a family friend is staying at my house, with them. He'll feed and walk them, and spend the night.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,
