It’s baseball season! And being at the stadium gives you a chance to cheer with fans, enjoy snacks from the concession stands, and buy some team merch.

So when you travel this summer, why not add a baseball game—a quintessential American experience—to your itinerary? We’ve comprised a list with some of the top favorite ballparks to visit in the U.S.  

Yankee Stadium, New York

Home to the New York Yankees, the first Yankee stadium opened its doors in the 1920s and the building standing in its place is known as one of the most expensive ballparks to date. Limestone and granite are just some of the materials used to build this 46,537-seater stadium.

And while you’re in New York, why not visit the Bronx Zoo with your family, or visit the iconic Stan’s Sports Bar?

Wrigley Field, Chicago

Wrigley Field, home to the Chicago Cubs, has some fascinating rooftop views because of its suburban location. Constructed in 1914, the stadium is steeped in baseball history, with the marquee sign over the main entrance and the hand-turned scoreboard . While you’re here, you may want to do a ballpark tour, visit Lincoln Park Zoo, and the Navy Pier.

Fenway Park, Boston

Fenway Park is home to the Boston Red Sox. Built in 1912, Fenway Park Stadium is among the oldest ballparks in the United States. It features the “Green Monster”, a 37-foot wall in left field, as well as Pesky’s Pole. You can also view the Sox Wall of Fame, attend a guided tour, or visit House of Blues, a popular music club.

Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles

This stadium, home to the LA Dodgers, may not have an old history like Fenway and Wrigley, but it is one of the most famous ballparks since its establishment in the 1960s. If you’re out with the family catching a game at Dodger stadium, check out baseball merch at the store, sample exciting foods from their updated menu, or visit the on-site botanic garden.

T-Mobile Park, Seattle

Earlier called Safeco Field, T-Mobile Park is home to the talented Seattle Mariners. The stadium might be a baby compared to the others, with its inaugural pitch in 1999, but it boasts a retractable roof for all-weather games, craft beers, and curated local foods. When in Seattle, also visit the art museum, the waterfront, or do an underground tour.

  • Kaufmann Stadium, Kansas City: Features a famous water spectacular, and is home to the Kansas City Royals.
