Grilling outdoors, hitting the local swimming pool and the calendar turning to Memorial Day mean that the official start of summer vacation is here! As you prepare for a season of fun activities and travel, here are the five sports venues that you should add to your “must-see” list this summer!
1. The Colorado Rockies’ Coors Field
What’s not to love about a ballpark in a city that boasts 300 days of sunshine a year? Add to that access to an in-ballpark brewery and special party deck, and Coors Field presents a good time for certain!
A number of features inside of the playing home of Sportsdigita partner, the Colorado Rockies, makes Coors Field an attractive summer destination.
Believe it or not, the Rockies’ ballpark is home to where Blue Moon is brewed! Since 1995, the Blue Moon Brewing Co. has been situated inside of the ballpark’s confines, providing fans with access to top craft brews.
After grabbing a craft beer, fans at Rockies games can venture to Coors Field’s Rooftop. The Rooftop provides baseball fans with an unprecedented viewing experience. Surrounded by some of Denver’s top culinary feats, fans can watch the game under the shade of a cabana or alongside lush garden settings.
2. The Miami Marlins’ Marlins Park
Sports fans looking to party hard this summer should consider heading southbound to the Miami Marlins’ Marlins Park.
With a retractable roof, you’ll never have to worry about weather delays during Marlins games. Likewise, you’ll never have to worry about not having fun. That’s because Marlins Park features a one-of-a-kind nightclub viewing experience, the Clevelander.
With the purchase of a special ticket, fans can view Marlins games from a nightclub setting featuring a swimming pool, dancers, DJs and stilt walkers. Located in the left field lower level, when fans aren’t busy partying, they have a great view into the opposing team’s bullpen, and of course, of the game.
3. The Green Bay Packers’ Lambeau Field
The summer months can be tough on football fans, so why not schedule a summer trip to one of the most iconic stadiums in all of sports?
Built in 1957, fans visiting Lambeau Field can enjoy one of two tours highlighting the impressive history of Sportsdigita partner, the Green Bay Packers’, home stadium. From walking through the player’s tunnel to learning just how cold the stadium’s metal seats get on game night, fans can experience the stadium from the views of players and fans alike.
After enjoying a tour of Lambeau Field, fans should snap a few pictures in the team’s new, two-level hall of fame and buy a souvenir in the expansive team shop.
4. The Louisville Bats’ Louisville Slugger Field
With ties to one of the most prominent companies in baseball history, it’s unsurprising that MiLB’s, the Louisville Bats, have one of the most fan-friendly homes in minor league baseball.
Fans visiting the ballpark of this Sportsdigita partner will first be taken by the venue’s amazing views. Every seat in the ballpark looks at the Ohio River, with some even featuring the downtown Louisville skyline.
While Louisville Slugger Field’s views are enough to write home about, the ballpark is also home to a brewery. Against The Grain Brewery is located in a corner of the ballpark and features an impressive list of in-house craft brews.
5. The Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium
When it comes to visiting sports venues, there truly is no venue like “the house that Jerry built.”
The Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium is a spectacle that every true sports fan must see in their lifetime, and enough to center a summer vacation around. While many are familiar with the stadium’s monstrous HD video screen, the stadium’s art collection may attract even those who aren’t avid sports fans to check it out.
A variety of tours present visitors an opportunity to see the unique amenities present in this Sportsdigita partner’s home. From team and visiting players’ locker rooms to the museum quality contemporary art dispersed throughout the stadium, there are captivating sights worth seeing inside of AT&T Stadium.
Truth be told, with stadium adventures alone, there is enough to keep every wanderlust traveler’s attention filled this summer! What are your favorite stadiums to visit and which are on your “must-see” lists? Share with us on social media @Sportsdigita!
