We all know that while nothing beats a Boston Red Sox game in Fenway Park, but it’s tough to get affordable tickets. The Green Monster may be the ultimate, but a day at Fenway can add up. For just about the same price, you can hop a plane down to Baltimore, take a $3 train ride into Baltimore, and get off right at Camden Yards, catch a Red Sox vs. Orioles game, then walk or train it to a downtown B&B for a weekend getaway exploring Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and historic Federal Hill, Butcher Hill or Fells Point neighborhoods. During a recent check, I discovered ball game tickets start at $8 for upcoming games against the Orioles in the June 4-6 series and the August 31 - September 2 series.

After you watch the Boston Red Sox win, a number of great B&Bs are within walking distance or a quick cab ride from there, all within an easy stroll or ride to Baltimore’s downtown attractions.  Click here to read about four great downtown Baltimore B&Bs, within an easy walk or ride from Camden Yards.
