The difference I note is how fresh/warm the food is, how quickly lines move, that kind of a thing. That said, there might be as much variance in the same park depending on when you are there in the season, or from one season to the next, than there is between different parks.

I also like to walk around a ballpark if I haven't been there before, or if I get there early just to see the variety of concessions and things like that. That's not possible at every park.

The parks outside of Chicago I have been to the most often (that are still standing) are Coors Field, Turner Field, and Nationals Park. The design and overall ballpark experience at each I have found to be quite similar.
