|About these ratings|
Named for Denver's famed beer, Coors Field in Denver's LoDo district is home to Major League Baseball's Colorado Rockies. The stadium occupies a whopping 76 acres and has the capacity to seat more than 50,000 people. Of course, the main reason to come to Coors Field is to catch a game, but there's more to this stadium than a diamond. Whether you're traveling with children or alone, be sure to spend some time at the Interactive Area (behind the bullpens on the Main Concourse) where you can test your skills in the video batting cages and the Speed Pitch area. And if you've left the kids at home, take the opportunity to sample some of Denver's local brews on the Rooftop, a 38,000-square-foot platform with fantastic views of the field and downtown Denver. If the weather isn't cooperating, pay a visit to the on-site Blue Moon brewery instead.
Even if you aren't able to catch a game, you should still take time to tour the stadium. Guided tours (which cost $9 for adults, $7 for seniors and $6 for children ages 12 and younger) allow you to visit areas you wouldn't get to see if you simply attended a game, including the dugout, the club level and the press area. According to one TripAdvisor user, "This is a must for all Rockies fans, or any fan of baseball." Tour times vary throughout the year: During baseball season, guided tours are offered at 10 a.m., noon and 2 p.m. on non-game days and at 10 a.m. and noon when there's an evening game; during the off season, you can explore the stadium every day at noon and 2 p.m. Although reservations aren't required, they are recommended as groups fill up quickly.
Keep in mind that your best bet for scoring game tickets would be booking in advance. Detailed seating charts and ticket prices, as well as more information on reserving a spot on a tour, can be found on the Colorado Rockies website. You can reach the stadium on foot from downtown Denver — it's also near popular areas like Larimer Square and the 16th Street Mall — or via the Union Station stop on the light rail's C, E and W lines.
