Williamsport, Pennsylvania: Little League Baseball Museum
When you are about 12 years old and playing baseball, this is where you want to play. Williamsport has become known for as the place where Little League began, and its roots are shown in the museum next to the stadium. You can learn that Little League is where batting helmets were essentially invented, or at least brought into common use.
The real action, though, is in the back yard, appropriately enough. The Little League World Series is held here every year, and ESPN is showing more and more games. Here's what the place looks like from the cheap seats, a much better view than the one from behind home plate because of the Central Pennsylvania mountains.
