A BEAUTIFUL race park with an even more impressive simultcast building. Prices for food can be a pretty penny but find a night where there are $1 drinks or cheap beer. The night we went even had live music in between the races. As long as you don't gamble away your vacation money then it really is a nice night out.
General Parking $3.00
There are nicer seats upstairs but you pay more for those. I actually had more fun being on the general admission grounds and listening to the music, walking around, etc.
Equipment: Bring your wallet :)
If you like baseball, head out to "The Ballpark in Arlington" where you can see a Texas Rangers baseball game.
Equipment: Beware the Sun
General admission tickets will most likely be outside with no real shade. Bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen to protect yourself from the Texas sun.
Coolers are not allowed, but refreshments are sold in the stands and at booths throughout the stadium.
"COLD BEEER!... Get ya Cold Beer!
The Texas Rangers baseball team is TONS of fun to go see and spend a day at the ballpark. It is a beautiful stadium.
There is even a song, goes something like this "Take me out to the ballgame, if we don't win it's a shame, for its' one, two, three strikes your out at the ole ballgame
You have to catch a baseball game at the Ballpark at Arlington, currently called "Ameriquest Field" *
Anyway, night games here are great.
It's cool yet TX warm in the evening, the park architecture is interesting, you can see well, and the food (vendors and shops) is top notch for a stadium.
Cheap seats are affordable and more than adequate for a night of Texas baseball.
Adult prices range from as low as $5 (grandstand reseved) to ~$22 (terrace box) and great deals for kids 13 and under - $2 to $5 see website seating chart with excellent sightlines of the field. A good Texas night family outing.
* ... (geez, ... how I can do without all this commercial crap of ruining good sports venues with "name" advertising.)
Do you know the "Stick" in SF is now called "Monster Field," not to mention Mile High in Denver having to share its name with "Invesco." puke! (ok, end of rant...)
