Thinking about a low budget vacation this year

Since we spent a lot of money this year fixing up the kitchen and the bathroom, we will have to spend less money on vacation.  I have three ideas:

1. Cooperstown, NY for the Baseball Hall of Fame.  The problem is that all the hotels close by are already booked for the entire summer.  The closest hotel with a vacancy is in Oneonta about 20 miles away.

2. Cleveland - to see the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  We were there in 1998, but obviously the museum would have different exhibits.  The issue is that Cleveland is a drab city and there isn't anything else to do there.  We stopped in Cleveland last summer during the Jay Buckley Baseball Tour to see a game at Jacobs Park, but there wasn't time to see the Rock Hall.

3. Baltimore - there are several museums in the Inner Harbor area.  We can see a game or two at Camden Yards.

We have time to decide.

As Len Berry sand "1, 2 , 3. " I see Bruce you have given yourself 3 options instead of 1, 2, 2, as typed. All in good fun.

If I were you and those were my options, I'd go back to Cleveland. Take in a ballgame or two. Maybe you'll be sitting next to our friend Alan? Also, revisit The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Perhaps you will post some on your Journal?
