Marlins Park#7 in Best Things To Do in Miami
Known as one of the newest and most expensive major league ballparks to be built in the country, Marlins Park isn't your run-of-the-mill baseball stadium.
Located in the heart of Little Havana on the site of the old Orange Bowl football stadium, the 37,000-seat park features the standard ball park food vendors, ample parking and an official gift shop.
That's where the similarities with other major league parks end. Not only is Marlins Park equipped with a retractable roof with air conditioning to fend off the summer humidity, but it also houses a 700-piece bobblehead museum and two 450-gallon saltwater fish aquariums that line the walls behind home plate (with bullet-proof glass to protect them from stray balls).
Art is also a major presence at the park with four special projects selected by the Miami-Dade County Art in Public Places on display, and a 71-foot-tall sculpture featuring flamingos, palm trees and, of course, marlins that shoots water when the home team scores a homerun.
And it wouldn't be Miami if the ballpark didn't nod to South Beach: The venue also features The Clevelander, a nightclub and bar with an indoor pool, nightly DJs and go-go dancers.
Check out the Marlins schedule to catch a game (tickets range from $15 to $150) or take a tour of the park for a $10 fee.
