If you’re going to travel to baseball stadiums and collect baseball souvenirs eventually you’ll have to go to Milwaukee.
This past Easter weekend Riley and I travelled to Milwaukee to watch the Brewers play the LA Dodgers.
We picked up tickets online at StubHub for $35 a piece. It’s early in the season so I think that’s a pretty fair price. We sat in the club section front row, which is prime area for catching a foul ball. During our game there were 4 fouls into our section, Riley narrowly missed catching one. So in this instance, we had to buy our souvenir ball from the gift shop.
Some of the perks of sitting in the club seats is that there is that waitress service to your seat, but there is also specialty food kiosks on the concourse. Things like carved meat sandwiches, and cheesecake, things that you wouldn’t get in the regular seating.
One of the other perks of sitting in club is that there are more washrooms per capita.
There are less crowded souvenir stands in addition to comfy chairs and big screen TVs on the concourse. There were even phone charging stations.
I will say that every baseball stadium I’ve been to there are good seats and there are great seats but there are truly no “bad seats.” So whenever you sit, you’ll still have a fabulous time!
There can however be bad weather, but not a big deal in Milwaukee because they have a covered stadium. So no worries about a rain delay in Milwaukee. But if the weather is sunny and fabulous, it has a retractable roof so they can open the dome and let the sunshine in.
In terms of ballpark food, I had a bratwurst dog and local craft beer at a cost of $17. Riley had chicken fingers, waffle fries, a bag of peanuts and a Pepsi For about $22.
Miller Field is about 10 minutes from Downtown Milwaukee and most of the hotels or restaurants have free shuttles to the ball park. That was awesome! I love a free shuttle! Our driver, Steve, had lots of personality and it was a fun little shuttle drive. (Don’t forget to tip your shuttle drivers!)
If you’re looking for a great ballpark don’t overlook Milwaukee! Great city, great time.
