    Good stuff. Let me throw another option out for Twins' fans who have at least a long weekend or a week to travel to the East Coast and see Twins' MiLB ball:

    Fly to Albany, NY. Less than 2 hrs by car to New Britain and about 3 hrs to Rochester, plus even away games for both Northern IL and EL are close. Need to have a look at the Rock Cats' and Red Wings' schedules an plan it, but one can definitely double dip...

    Our family road trip to New Britain occurred while the Rock Cats hosted the Eastern League All-Star game in 2013. We got smokin' cheap lodging at the Radisson Hotel, Hartford.

    Also, touring the Harriet Beacher Stowe and Mark Twain homes/museums in Hartford are great ways to fill out the rest of your day(s) before the ballgame. If you take in either tours, stop by "The Half Door" a great Irish Pub in the area. Ranked #10 out of over 400 restaurants in the area. http://www.tripadvisor.com/Restauran...nnecticut.html

    Thry and Greed Guy, great comments and ideas -- thanks. The Half Door has a pretty amazing beer selection, and good food, too.
    Since you mentioned non-eating/drinking things, I'd also add that the Wadsworth Anthenem (downtown Hartford) and New Britain Museum of American Art are both great to fill an afternoon.
