Getting to the Game (3.5 out of 5)
I took a bus from Massachusetts to get to the game, so I did not have to worry about parking. From what I remember, Camden Yards has decent parking lot options for fans who needed to drive to the game. If you have any questions on Camden Yards Parking, you can head over to that link. You can also take the MTA Light rail to the game too.
The Neighborhood (3.5 out of 5)
A lot of people ask if Camden Yards is in a bad neighborhood. The way I view the neighborhood score is seeing if I would spend time before or after a game there. The area around the stadium is for sports fans with plenty of bars and things to do before and after a game. Some bars include Pickles Pub, Sliders Bar and Grille, Pratt Street Ale House, and more or staple places to go before the game.
The Park (4.5 out of 5)
Camden Yards changed the game of baseball with a new design. Many new parks take Camden Yards as inspiration for their venue, so it’s impressive how well this facility came out. As the new parks have come in, my only complaint about the park is that the concourses are not open as you walk around the Stadium.
Food (4 of out 5)
Camden Yards had traditional food that you can find at most ballparks along with signature dishes. Some of the standouts include Baltimore Burger Bar which offers hamburgers and cheeseburgers. Ole Mole offers soft tacos, beans, and churros. Smith-field Corners offers pork burgers which is a classic in section 5 in the lower level of the stadium

The Atmosphere (3.5 out of 5)
I’ve been to Camden Yards twice, but not since 2007. When I went to the game, the stands had so many Red Sox Fans since it was against the Red Sox. With the place being almost all Red Sox Fans, you felt bad for the home teams fans who were surrounded by the opposing team’s fan base.
Repeat Value (4 out of 5)
Despite the current problem with the hometown team’s performance in 2019, I think Camden Yards is incredible. The stadium still is beautiful even though newer stadiums have improved upon the ballpark. The fans and the ushers at the stadium are friendly so that you will have a great experience. My recommendation is to visit this ballpark when your favorite team is in town because the hometown team won’t be good in 2019.
