I felt like a puppy and could have rolled around in the grass to feel the greats all around me. My first bucket list trip hit it out of the park, especially the private tour.

We took our son and daughter for a long anticipated visit. While we read that the average time spent there was 3.5 hours, we stayed for a little over 8. A wonderful day spent with our baseball loving family.

Years ago you used to be able to bring coolers and have alcohol because it’s all outside. I would check the website. I’m positive you could do a cooler with food but check on the website
