Perched along the Allegheny River, this renowned ballpark features spectacular sights of the Steel City skyline and the beautiful Clemente Bridge. A unique two-level ballpark that opened in 2001, PNC provides an intimate setting and spectacular views and sightlines from anywhere in the stadium. A TripAdvisor traveler commented, "The views of the city from the ballpark are beautiful; great food and beer selections."

"Even if you don't like baseball, you must take in a game here," said a TripAdvisor traveler.

3. Oriole Park at Camden Yards , Baltimore, Maryland

A modern classic and first of the "retro parks," Camden Yards is located blocks from Inner Harbor and has been the popular home to Baltimore's big league team since 1992. Before the game, travelers can explore Eutaw Street where more than 60 home runs have landed, and marvel at the impressive B&O Warehouse in right field, claimed to be the longest brick building on the East Coast. A TripAdvisor traveler said, "Just an amazing ballpark truly the total package for going to a baseball game."

4. Fenway Park, Boston, Massachusetts

In the heart of Boston, baseball fans will enjoy a game at America's oldest ballpark. Since 1912, this "lyric little bandbox," as described by John Updike, has been home to Boston's beloved "local nine" and is famous for the Green Monster wall in left field, atop which visitors can now enjoy seeing games.  "Absolutely loved watching our first baseball game at Fenway! Amazing fans, great beer and a good time," commented a TripAdvisor traveler.

5. Busch Stadium , St. Louis, Missouri

Often referred to as "New Busch Stadium," this gorgeous park opened in 2006 and allows baseball fans to enjoy the game against the backdrop of the Gateway Arch and St. Louis skyline. Those big on game day goodies can indulge in many mouthwatering local foods including everything from turkey legs to pulled pork. "If you stroll around the park, you will find that Busch Stadium is an experience all in itself," said one TripAdvisor traveler.

6. Citizens Bank Park , Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 

With its lowered field 23 feet below street level and bowl-style seating, visitors enjoy magnificent sightlines for the game as well as stunning views of the city skyline.  At this stunning new stadium that opened in 2004, fans can partake in a local favorite Philly cheesesteak and catch a glimpse of the players warming up from the bullpen viewing platform.
