So I'm heading to Cooperstown this July for HOF weekend to see my childhood idol, Ken Griffey Jr., get inducted into the Hall. Just looking for any advice on how to approach this. I tried getting a hotel room months ago, but they were already booked within a 90 minute drive. Me and my brother are planning on driving from Toledo early Saturday morning to get there and tour things that afternoon, then watch the ceremony on Sunday before heading to Boston.
I'd love to know if anyone has experience with HOF weekend, and what their recommendations are. How early should we arrive at the induction venue? How long will we wait to tour the musueum this weekend? Any good places to eat in the area? Does anyone know if the HOFers do autograph signings? Since we're not getting a hotel, we're planning on crashing in the truck for the night, so a location to park of the night would be great.
I'm sure some of the MGoCrowd has been in attendance, so just trying to get as much info as possible before we head to the Mecca of baseball. Thanks in advance!
