Lately, I have been on a kick to try and go see as much as LA has to offer, whether it is hiking through Runyon Canyon, walking down the Walk of Fame, capturing my hands with Marilyn Monroe’s or taking in a good sporting event.
Only having been to one other major league baseball game, I was not quite sure what to expect. I had seen the Cubs play at Wrigley Field about ten years ago, and remember absolutely loving it. Plus, I thought it would be like having a little piece of home with a Midwest team here in LA.
Let me just say that Dodger Stadium is AWESOME. It was crazy easy to get there, parking was an easy in and out, and all of the attendants were very helpful (we were on a mission to find veggie dogs).
Since it opened in 1962, this little stadium offers spectators with a breathtaking view of downtown Los Angeles to the south; green, tree-lined Elysian hills to the north and east; and the San Gabriel Mountains beyond. You can’t really beat that while soaking in some Southern California rays.
So if you find yourself with nothing to do and a few extra bucks you’d like to throw towards some fun entertainment, hit up Dodger Stadium and enjoy some peanuts and Cracker Jacks.
