Construction Cost: $110 Million
Camden Yards was beautiful, clean, and a great place to experience a baseball game. Going from AT&T Ballpark (home of the Giants) to Camden Yards, I think I was a bit spoiled going into the game. I had heard that both stadiums were 1-2 in the entire league, and it’s tough not to agree.
First off, the area is just really fun. We went to the well-known bar “Pickles Pub” before the game, and you could tell that’s clearly the pre-and-post game spot. The ballpark itself was really cool; behind right field is “Eutaw Street,” which is between the stadium and the “B&O Warehouse.” There’s a bunch of shops and restaurants to visit, or you can just view the game from afar, basically like outfield standing seats.

The fans were really into it despite a large crowd of Cardinals fans invading the place. The food was great, and the stadium was really clean, which is always a pleasure to me when visiting different stadiums (some are dirty and old). I really enjoyed the stadium and love the location it’s in, and would recommend checking it out. It was the second best ballpark I’ve been to, only behind AT&T’s beautiful establishment (not a slight to Camden Yards in the least bit).
