On Sunday evening, the St. Louis Cardinals won the game meaning that World Series Tickets are now on sale. Getting tickets to MLB’s World Series is a last minute purchase that turns into an instant vacation. For this reason, the tweets associated with the release of the location of the upcoming games included a lot of mentions about the family.
As one MLB fan said, “Going to the World Series with the wife. Not sure what she wants to do while I watch the games.” Since I have family that lives in both cities, creating a guide for visiting both of those cities during the World series was easy.
What they can do when you are at the game
Currently, prices for MLB post season tickets do not seem to be deterring most fans. Tickets for the Cardinals game this year range from $375 for the Champions Club pass to $50 for the standing room. However, they are not cheap enough to take anyone that does not truly enjoy the game. This means, before the games, fans are trying to figure out what activities are available for those that decide to tag along on the adventure to St. Louis or Arlington, Texas .
What to do in Arlington, Texas
While you might not be in the right city for the popular Cold Play or Avenue Q tours, there are still many fun things to do in these locations. Local Arlington MLB fans and Arlington.org make several suggestionsfor the nights of the game including the 2011 Taste of Arlington, the St. Louis Rams vs the Dallas Cowboys football game, and visiting the kid-friendly Bad Konigshofen Family Aquatic Center.
Fun in St. Louis besides the Cardinals’ games
St. Louis, on the other hand, is full of unique entertainment tours. It appears that most people will take a break from baseball on the days they are playing in Arlington from October 22 to 24. Suggested places to go during this weekend include the Greater St. Louis Marching Band Festival, comedian Chris Tucker, a Saturday at the Ferguson Farmers’ Market, and an evening of watching musicians Celtic Thunder perform.
Upcoming schedules for the 2011 World Series
