Disclaimer: I was provided with a ticket to the Astros game by Experience Kissimmee. No compensation was received, nor was I obligated to write about my experience. All opinions are my own.
I wouldn’t describe myself as a huge baseball fan, but give me a chance to watch a live game in a major league park, and I’m in! So I was really excited, when Lacey with Charm & Sass invited me to attend Sunday’s Astros game with the Experience Kissimmee team.
Minute Maid Park was the third Major League Baseball stadium I’ve been to this season. In May, I crossed Wrigley Field off my bucket list when I watched the Cubs play the Reds. Just two weeks later, I watched the Padres play the Nationals at Petco Park! A girl, well a sports fan like me, could get used to traveling to different ballparks!
That’s exactly what the Experience Kissimmee team is doing this month. They are traveling to five stadiums and six different games this August. Wish I could go with them. While they aren’t taking the field, they are scoring some major points with the fans as they give away fun prizes. One lucky winner at each of the games, will take home a $500 gift card!
- August 20 New York Yankees vs. Toronto Blue Jays
- August 21 Chicago Cubs vs. Washington Nationals
- August 23 Chicago White Sox vs. Texas Rangers
- August 31 Atlanta Braves vs. Miami Marlins
Yes, I’m well aware that my home team isn’t having a super season (dead last in the American League), but baseball games are fun regardless of who wins.
Astros fans may be ready for the baseball season to be over, but the fun is still going strong in Kissimmee. Fall means popular attractions are less crowded. Many area attractions and accommodations are offering summer sequel discounts, so you can enjoy a vacation for less before the holidays. Many of our friends visit Disney World every October for Halloween because the lines are shorter, and temps are cooler.
