Destination of the Day: Progressive Field, Cleveland, OH

Destination 1 in the series "Opening Day!, Week II"

Opening Day was 1 April against the Chicago White Sox. The next home game is Tuesday, 5 April, at 7:05 pm against the Boston Red Sox.  This 45,199 seat stadium did not see this year start out on the right foot for Cleveland.  With the team already 1-2 the season can only improve.  The stadium itself is a nice little jewel with a number of restaurants and bars in the surrounding downtown area.  For the CTer the closest light rail station is The Rapid's Tower City.  Should the visit extend over a long weekend Cleveland has several first rate museums including the Great Lakes Science Center, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and Museum, and the Cleveland Museum of Art.
