In June 1939, Babe Ruth helped christen the Baseball Hall of Fame in the birthplace of his sport. Celebrate its 75th anniversary with a trip to this small town in upstate New York, where they’re commemorating the event all summer (check out baseballhall.org for details). Take in the Legends Game, featuring stars of past eras, after seeing all your favorite players' stats and tons of memorabilia at the Hall and connected museum. Then break a sweat in the BASE Race 5K and 10K charity runs, practice your hitting at the Doubleday batting range, or get some exercise with a game of golf or tennis at the historic, activity-filled Otesaga Hotel nearby (rooms from $319; otesaga.com).
Don't watch every game from the same ol' barstool. From stadiums to interactive museums, we’ve rounded up the best places to get a closer look at the action—plus ways to stay active while you’re following your favorite sport.
