sorry if you clicked this for pics. This is a preliminary thread.
but, as is stated, im thinking on taking a road trip to Boston around the end of the summer (august 3rdish-7thish). It will be me and two of my good friends heading to Fenway to catch one of the Rangers vs Red Sox games, and maybe a Yankees game. Kind of starting this thread for advise, ideas, and whatever tips you northerners might have for 3 stupid 21 year old north carolinians heading above the mason dixon line.
the main thing is going to one of the games in the Rangers series at Boston. but hopefully we'll be able to also go to one of the yankees games on the 4th or 5th on the way there. Really don't have much of an idea as of a schedule yet, other than leave nc early one morning and pit stop in Philly that night. From there, no clue.
So, some of my questions are things like
-what's some must see places in my route?
-what's the best way to handle parking and such at yankee stadium and fenway? i get the feeling there aren't massive free parking lots anywhere near yankees stadium at the least. shuttle services? cab it up? what to do?!
-what's a reasonable hotel room cost up north? (as in cheap, but at the same time i don't want roaches to carry me away. $60 can get you luxury down here haha)
-i know nothing about toll roads
-will i get shot if i say "yall"?
-general does and donts
-anything you think might be fun and/or save me money
This is one of those once in a lifetime kind of trips for us. We've all been up north a few times, but it will likely be all of our last chance to do something fun before we graduate and get old and boring like most of yall
just kidding. but seriously; traveling with my friends, seeing new parts of this great country, seeing historic places, famous baseball stadiums, etc - all way more fun and worth the money for us than blowing $2k in a week in the bahamas.
here's the worst part - $$$ we're obviously trying to keep this as cheap as possible. right now we'd like to keep it to around $500-$600 a head, total cost. am i thinking unrealistic here? ive done some math with ticket, gas, food, booze, and other expenses totaled up and it seems pretty reasonable. will $1500-$1800 be enough for us to do our thing and have a good time?
anyway, i'll quite typing and let this thread take it's course. As is obvious, im planning WAY ahead right now. something might happen and we might not even be able to make this trip. so just throw out some stuff at me and we'll see what happens come august. thank you.
