To get from Cleveland to the closest beach, you have to travel to approximately 650 miles to the Outer Banks, NC. A few tanks of gas, a hotel and 10 hours in the car with your kids is a hefty price to pay for a bit of sun on your back . For a cheaper, and less brain- and wallet-draining option, get your zinc oxide on and head over to the Beach Weekend series at Progressive Field on July 16th, 17th and 18th.
This year, it’s the Tigers vs. the Tribe, all three days. On Friday there will be a fireworks from the field show. On Saturday, you also get an Indians Floppy Hat. On Sunday, its a Webkinz Goldfish.
Tribe fans are taking notice, with tickets going for 22% and 41% above the season average for the series for games 1 and 2. If you’re looking for a relaxing and affordable alternative to the beach, this is a great option for the whole family. Just don’t forget to bring a book.
