Father’s Day and Baseball – Timeshare Vacation Idea

A day at the Ballpark and America’s National Pastime could be the perfect Father’s Day gift. Many of the Major League baseball teams are playing at home on Sunday, June 17, right where there are some great bargains for renting a timeshare.

1. New York City. The Mets are hosting the Cincinnati Reds at Citi Field, where the team moved in 2009 from famous Shea Stadium, home to the Mets since 1964.

You can rent a timeshare for Dad’s New York City baseball getaway right in Manhattan. For example, the Manhattan Club has timeshare rentals starting at just $150/night.

2. St. Petersburg, FL. The Tampa Bay Rays will be hosting Miami at Tropicana Field (see photo left), a domed stadium where the Rays have played since their first season in 1998 (when they were known as the Devil Rays). Tropicana Field is currently the only domed stadium in Major League Baseball that is not retractable.

There are a number of great timeshare rentals available throughout the Tampa Bay area, which includes St. Petersburg, Tampa Bay, and Sarasota, among a number of other beachside towns. Camelot by the Sea resort starts at just $104/night.

3. Oakland, CA. The Oakland As will be hosts to the San Diego Padres at the O.co Coliseum, where they have played since 1968. The Coliseum is part of the multipurpose Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum complex, and is also home to the NFL Oakland Raiders.

A stay across the bay in San Francisco would give dad the best of both worlds for this baseball vacation. Put dad up at a timeshare rental at the Donatello Resort for just $110/night, where he's just a cable car ride away from succulent steamed crabs at Fisherman's Wharf.

4. Los Angeles, CA. Two home games are being played in the Los Angeles area on Father’s Day. The American League LA Angels are hosts to Arizona in Angel Stadium of Anaheim (see photo right). The Angels have played in “The Big A” since 1966. The halo around the “Big A” is lit every time the team wins (at home or on the road). 

And the National League Los Angeles Dodgers will be hosting the Chicago White Sox at Dodger Stadium, the third oldest ballpark in Major League Baseball (after Boston’s Fenway Park and Chicago’s Wrigley Field).

Southern California is full of timeshare rentals of every description. Dad could stay at a timeshare rental at Dolphins Cove Resort in Anaheim for just $93/night, and which is, coincidentally, within walking distance of Disneyland.

5. Washington, D.C. The Washington Nationals are hosts this Father’s Day to the New York Yankees. The team moved to the new Nationals Stadium, with views of the Capitol, in 2008. Originally the Montreal Expos, the Nationals’ first three seasons were played at RFK Stadium when they became a national franchise team.

A trip to our Nation’s Capital can give dad more than baseball – such as the Air and Space Museum (it’s free!). The Wyndham Old Town Alexandria timeshare rentals start at just $69/night, and it's an easy Metro ride to both Nationals Stadium and the Smithsonian museums on The Mall.

Happy Father’s Day, Dad!
