LOS ANGELES | Dodger Stadium is the home of the LA Dodgers, and has been a fixture in Elysian Park neighborhood of Los Angeles since 1962. It’s the third oldest baseball stadium in the US (behind Wrigley Field and Fenway Park) and one of the last purpose-build baseball stadiums constructed before the multipurpose stadium became preferred. The location of the stadium is quite picturesque, carved into the hillside of Chavez Ravine, overlooking downtown LA and the San Gabriel mountains.
When visiting Los Angeles, it’s well worth timing your trip so you can see a Dodgers game, even if you’re not a baseball fan. Game day itself is exciting – music plays as fans stream through the gates and fill the stadium and an an electric energy fills the air. As you watch the game, you can’t help but get involved in the action. If you don’t know the team chants, or the lyrics to “take me out to the ball game”, at the start of the game, you will by the end.
Food options are your usual stadium fare like Dodger dogs, nachos, and popcorn, and you’re allowed to bring food (not alcohol) from outside provided it is not in bottles, cans, coolers or thermoses. Drinks wise, there’s actually a better range than you might expect. Lovers of craft beer will be happy to know that full strength brews from Stone and Lagunitas, for example, are available.
Dodger Stadium also hosts other events, mostly concerts, during the off-season, but to get the full Dodger Stadium experience, you have to see a Dodgers game.
