As always, there will not only be plenty of great baseball and entertaining bus banter, but lots of “in-port” opportunities. Just a few examples: The Negro Leagues Baseball Museum and National WWI Museum in Kansas City (not to mention 100’s of barbeque restaurants and blues bars); the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum and National Blues Museum in St. Louis (plus plenty of night-life options downtown – and near downtown – and “Ballpark Village, with a host of libation, dining and entertainment offerings); and the Figge Art Museum (Davenport/Quad Cities).
We’ve also planned visits to the Iowa Baseball Museum (and the Prairie View Saloon, right next door); as well as the Potosi Brewery and Beer Museum.
We could go on, but you get the idea. And yes, we have seats left on our motor coach, but it’s already half-full, so now is a good time to sign up.
