Hi all-
Hoping some of you veterans can give a newbie a little advice: I'm a HUGE fan since my first game in 1980, but moved from the area when I was young, so don't know much about it....I'm considering bringing my 7 year old daughter on a trip up for opening day and need a little advice: 1) where to stay--particularly, do any hotels overlook the parade route?? 2) I know its a huge party and all---but will there be enough activities for a 7 year old girl to have a good time? 3) when do they announce gametime for opening day?? Thanks for any help!!!

You can't miss. Get a room downtown now, tickets to the games and go have a good time.

I'm almost positive that it goes through Fountain Square, so any of those hotels would likely overlook it.

The Westin definitely overlooks the parade, as long as you get a room on the north side. Not sure about the Hyatt. However, I do suggest hitting the streets for the parade. Lot of comarderie and good fun.

You are in for a treat.

Downtown is alive again, and very kid-friendly.
