I had been to one professional baseball game prior to this and that was many moons ago when I was still a teen. The weather was perfect, the food was great and the people who sat near us were fun to be around. Plus, the view of the river from the ballpark is just gorgeous. I have to say that this was so much fun and I can’t wait to go to another one.

    Thanks so much for including a few of my travel destinations. Ohio is a great place to visit.

      It really is. I got to visit for the 1st time in many years just a few months ago. I really hope I get to go back soon.

      And you are quite welcome. 🙂

    My favorite thing in Ohio is the Toledo Zoo! They re-did their aquarium and it’s awesome. Also, remodeled their playground and turned it into a big splash pad for kids. It’s very cool with lots to do. I love the zoo so much that I got married there in 2011!

    1. Dawn McAlexander

      That is awesome! I bet that was a really cool place to get married!

  3. China Barbie

    Very cool! I’m from Ohio and have done most of these things, but it’s really cool to see them all put together!
    Cleveland is always a great place to visit! I even wrote a small post about it on my blog. My favorite part was visiting the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. I think that’s the coolest part of Ohio! http://www.mypeacelovelife.com/blog/vacation-to-clevleand-ohio
