*Thank you to The Colorado Rockies for hosting our experience. We are so excited to tell you all about our incredible time at Coors Field.*
When we began traveling with our kids, we had 1 goal: visit all 50 states.
However the more we’ve traveled, the more our goals grew. One thing we’ve recently added to the travel bucket list is to visit baseball stadiums.
My son, Miller, is especially passionate about this goal. He loves baseball and plans to visit every ballpark. Incidentally, there are some very cool ways to track your travels! Here are a few that I love:
Anyway, back to the Colorado Rockies…
Early on in our road trip planning phase, I realized a Rockies home stand coincided with the dates we were in Denver. Instantly, going to a game flew to the top of our priority list. In fact, I was so sure the anticipation of going to a game would overshadow some of our other awesome plans that I decided to surprise Miller!
Our family decided to take the Light Rail to the game for a couple of reasons. First, my kids love a good train experience. Secondly, we thought it would be easier than driving and paying to park. It proved to be a great idea, but a tiny bit challenging to navigate the different and crowded trains.
Arriving at Coors Field was so exciting! The Colorado Rockies fans are some of the nicest we’ve ever encountered. There are lots of vendors surrounding the stadium and we took some great advice from a fellow train passenger and bought some cold bottled water from a vendor.
Here are a few of our favorite things (and some great tips) about visiting the Rockies at Coors Field:
- Although we didn’t test each and every one, I’m convinced there isn’t a bad seat in the house. Particularly interesting is the row of purple seats toward the top of the stadium. Row 865 is located at precisely 5,280 feet above sea level…in other words, a mile high!
- Guests can get “First Game” pins marked with the date from the customer service desk.
- The stadium has fabulous food! Be sure to take a quick stroll around the stadium as there are different options. Some guests (like myself!) might be particularly excited to know there is a whole cart dedicated to gluten-free items!
- The reason the Rockies mascot is a dinosaur is because during the construction of Coors Field there were fossils found.
- Blue Moon has a special brewery inside the stadium that’s only open during home games. The Sandlot features (what’s rumored to be) some of the freshest beer in town.
- The Colorado Rockies stadium is extremely kid-friendly. The Chick-fil-A playground is located on the main concourse and it’s a great place for kids to burn off some energy. There are also Family Restroom facilities located throughout the building.
As you can probably tell, we VERY much enjoyed our time at Coors Field! For more information or to purchase tickets, visit the Rockies official website.
