Road Trip to Pittsburgh and Cleveland - feedback requested

Jump to last reply

4 of us are going to be taking another baseball trip next June. All early 30s and willing to try anything.

Friday June 4
Drive from Hartford to Citi Field for the Marlins @ Mets Game (7:05 game)
Drive out of NYC and stay someplace on our way to Pittsburgh. Probably no more than an hour out of NYC.

Sat June 5
Drive to Pittsburgh
Google has NYC to Pittsburgh as a 6 hour drive which is what I expected. We would leave ~ 8 am.
Duquesne Incline
Primanti Bros for late lunch.
Giants @ Pirates Game (assuming 7:05 game)
Hotel: Hilton Pittsburgh

Sun June 6
Probably do something around the Point in the morning or downtown. Not much of an Andy Warhol fan but the museum is a possibility.
Giants @ Pirates Game (assuming 2:05 game)
Drive to Canton, OH after the game.
Hotel: La Quinta Canton

Mon June 7
Football HOF
Drive to Cleveland
Red Sox @ Indians
Hotel: Hampton Inn Cleveland Downtown

Tues June 8
Cleveland Zoo
Red Sox @ Indians

Wed June 9
R&R HOF
Red Sox @ Indians

Thurs June 10
Red Sox @ Indians (I am assuming this is a travel day so a 1:05 game but it could be 7:05 too)
Drive partway home. May look into stopping at Niagara Falls on the way home for part of the day on Friday.

How is public transportation in Cleveland?

What are other must-sees in Cleveland? I will admit I have not bought a guidebook yet. Would like to do a cruise or something on the Lake. We may not end up going to all of the games in Cleveland but will try to be at a bar to watch them
What about our hotel selection? We can change them. I almost have enough miles for 1 free night at a Hilton so I may use that for the night in Pittsburgh. Would have to buy some miles but definitely cheaper than the night rate.

Do you see any thing out of whack with our proposed itinerary besides a lot of baseball?
