Major League Baseball's Kansas City Royals make their home at Kauffman Stadium and the Royals are beloved by their Kansas City fans. The stadium was renovated in 2009 and, even better, this team has seen a resurgence over the past few years, bringing a new wave of enthusiasm across town. The Royals made a trip to the World Series in 2014 and secured a World Series win in 2015 – the first championship won by the baseball team since 1985. The stadium itself is filled with food and drink vendors, plus tickets to a game are on the more affordable side. Kauffman Stadium also offers ballpark tours during the offseason and on select Saturdays; these range in price from $17 to $55, based on the type of tour (discounts are available for children).
Baseball fans say this stadium is beautiful and encourage visitors to attend a game during their trip to Kansas City. Travelers say the energy inside the stadium is impressive and add that the fans are welcoming and friendly.
If you're going to a game, some suggest getting a lower level seat since the top levels have a steep incline. You'll find the stadium on the eastern edge of Kansas City, about 8 miles southeast of downtown; parking is available at the lots on-site. Tickets for the games vary and depend on the day, the seat and the opponent. Find more information on games and tours on the Kauffman Stadium website.
