Marlins Park#10 in Best Things To Do in Miami
Renovated in 2019, Marlins Park is home base for the Miami Marlins, the city's Major League Baseball franchise. Located in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, the ballpark is ultramodern with a trace of classic Miami culture. The park houses impressive, albeit superfluous, touches like aquariums behind home plate and custom artwork. Visitors who make it to a game get to watch one of baseball's most interesting teams. The Marlins have won two World Series titles since they began playing in 1993, though they did not move to Marlins Park until 2012. Travelers aren't guaranteed a win, though, as the Marlins have the least number of winning seasons of any Major League Baseball franchise.
Past visitors were astounded by the park's amenities. They praised the retractable roof, which ensures that it's always baseball weather, even during Miami's sweltering summers. Recent travelers also recommended stopping by The Clevelander, which boasts food, drinks, a pool and DJs in addition to an excellent view of the field. Ticket prices vary based on the game. They are available for purchase in advance on the Miami Marlins' page of the official MLB website or from scalpers around the stadium. Visitors can also take tours of the park for $10. Hours vary.
Travelers have to trek 2 miles from downtown Miami to reach Marlins Park. The Nos. 11, 51 and 55 bus routes drop passengers a few blocks from the park. For more information about the park, visit its official website.
