    Away.com shares their favorite cities to visit for the full baseball experience.

    Amanda Lukoff: Many of America's great cities are home to the country's best baseball stadiums. At Away.

    com, we picked three stadiums where you can catch a game and then enjoy all that the cities have to offer.

    Safeco Field in the heart of Seattle hosted its inaugural game in 1999, showing up views in Mount Rainer, Seattle's business district, and the Puget Sound, after the games got by Pike Place Market to see the original Starbucks, and the fish company's famous fish throwers.

    You either hate the Yanks, or you love them, but Yankee Stadium in New York City is certainly a top place to experience America's favorite pastime. The new stadium cost the richest team in baseball around 1.

    5 billion. So, the price tag alone makes it worth seeing.

    Of course outside of sports, New York City has it all; go shopping, see world class art or relax in Central Park.

    Fenway Park built in Boston in 1912 is the granddaddy of all baseball stadiums. Bostonians are fiercely loyal to their park. So instead of building a new one, the Red Sox just add more seats like on the famous Green Monster wall.

    While you're in Boston, check out the city's wealth of other sites like the historic Freedom Trail, and the new Liberty Wharf on the waterfronts. So, grab your suitcase and pack your peanuts and crackerjacks, then head out to the old ball game.
