In the age of social media and ever-evolving technology, somehow attending baseball games has remained one of the greatest American pastimes. While baseball itself is enough to unite fans of all ages, it’s often the stadiums that create the type of experience that MLB fans simply cannot find watching the game at home. From the positively charged and celebratory atmosphere to the local food and drinks, these stadiums offer the most fun in the major leagues. If you’re a baseball fan traveling to any of these cities, be sure to add attending a game at these stadiums to your itinerary.
Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia Phillies
With inexpensive tickets and excellent food and drink options, Citizens Bank Park makes for a fun night out, Philly-style. The stadium is easy to access via public transit, but there’s an abundance for parking for those who’d prefer to drive.
Fenway Park, Boston Red Sox
There are few stadiums, if any, that are richer with history than Boston’s Fenway Park. The atmosphere is unlike any other venue in the world, the food is delicious, and the between-inning entertainment may be some of the best in the MLB.
Yankee Stadium, New York Yankees
Newly renovated and filled with countless food and drink options, Yankee Stadium is the closest it gets to a luxury baseball experience. Arrive early to explore the beautiful, expansive venue and enjoy one of the seemingly endless food and beverage options, like Hard Rock Cafe.
Angel Stadium, Los Angeles Angels
Angel Stadium offers spectators some of the most inexpensive tickets in the major leagues as well as very affordable concessions. The stadium also has an area that features circus-esque attractions, like games and other fun activities.
PNC Park, Pittsburgh Pirates
With tickets for decent seats priced as low as $15, PNC Park offers MLB fans an affordable way to enjoy a ballgame. The beer selection is vast, and the food is great, with local specialties like pierogies and Primanti Brothers sandwiches.
Chase Field, Arizona Diamondbacks
Chase Field, located in Phoenix, offers MLB fans the unique opportunity to enjoy home games in an air-conditioned stadium, as it has a retractable roof designed to beat the Arizona heat. Fans can enjoy local beers and delicious snacks, and if you want to keep the party going after the game, there are plenty of restaurants and bars nearby.
Busch Stadium, St. Louis Cardinals
Featuring a view of the St. Louis Arch from the outfield, it’s hard to imagine an MLB stadium with a more impressive backdrop. Busch Stadium is– perhaps unsurprisingly– known for the wide selection of beer.
Wrigley Field, Chicago Cubs
Easy to access and filled with history, Wrigley Field is one of the most iconic venues in all of American sports. The beer and snacks are abundant and inexpensive, and if you get tickets online in advance they are also affordably priced.
Petco Park, San Diego Padres
Petco Park is as entertaining as the ballgame itself. Beautiful San Diego weather means that fans arrive hours early to enjoy food and drinks on sprawling green lawns before finding their feats. Food and drink options abound, and on Fridays the Padres celebrate Beerfest, a pregame happy hour with live music and $5 beers.
