Major League Baseball's St. Louis Cardinals are much beloved by their hometown. A visit to Busch Stadium will prove that, as you see the ballpark bathed in swaths of red-shirted fans. Even if you're not a baseball fan, a visit to this iconic St. Louis stadium cannot be missed. Baseball aside, the venue offers stunning views of the St. Louis skyline and the iconic Gateway Arch, according to past guests. Families were also impressed with the Family Pavilion, a facility renovated in 2017 that offers a multilevel play structure, a virtual reality experience, a suite for nursing mothers and more. What's more, this stadium offers escalators, which eliminate some of the walking you'll have to do to get from the concession stands to your seat.

You'll find Busch Stadium in the city's downtown area, just a few blocks from the river and within a mile of Scottrade Center (home of the city's NHL team, the St. Louis Blues). To see Busch Stadium, you can either catch a game or take a tour. Game fees vary, and hourlong tours cost $14 to $18 per person (kids 3 and younger do not need tickets). During baseball season, tours are available every day at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m., while offseason tours depart daily at 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

In addition to the family area, Busch Stadium features the Cardinals Hall of Fame and Museum, multiple team stores, sit-down and grab-and-go eateries, restrooms and a Build-A-Bear Workshop. Stadium hours vary by day, but the box office is generally open on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (during baseball season) and between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. (in the offseason). Parking is not available on-site, but MetroLink's Stadium station sits just west of the property. For more information about Busch Stadium, visit the facility's official website.
