History buffs, take note: Visiting this ocean state stadium is a bucket-list must. "That's where I played in a 33-inning game," says Ripken, "the longest contest ever in the history of professional baseball." Need another incentive? McCoy's tenants, the Pawtucket Red Sox, are the International League's defending champions and a combined 160-126 over the past two seasons. Just don't leave until the fat lady sings. "The 12 people that were still there at 4:07 in the morning got lifetime season tickets," adds the two-time Gold Glove Award winner. In the likely event that was a one-time deal, you'll have plenty of time to visit The Murals at McCoy, a tribute to 21 Red Sox legends painted by local artist Tayo Heuser.
