Default Coors Field

I will be in Denver from the 18th - 22nd of the month. During that time, the Rockies are at home, and my cousin posed the idea of attending a Rockies' game during my stay. It's quite ironic that the Cubs are the team in town during that weekend! We'd probably want to go to the game on the Saturday.

If any of you have been to Coors Field, let me know what you think of the place, as well as any comments about things within the ballpark. Feel free to also post stuff about Denver in general. While I've been to Denver, it was for a short 36 hours, as it was only for a wedding!

The ballpark is nice, but I wasn't too crazy about the city or the Rockies fans. They don't really seem to care much about baseball.

I thought the Denver Aquarium was worth a visit though.

Denver is awesome, especially if you love beer.

If you can't get to the mountains, at least go on a hike somewhere like Roxborough State Park.

Best view in sports.

The Buckhorn Exchange is recommended for dining, or least stop in for a beer if you are not crazy about elk steak.

Our family went to Coors Field a few years ago now. We were living large, splurged on tickets comparable to Club Level at USCF. Great food selection, great beer selection, service to your seat - it was all pretty nice.

You might want to make a point of sitting in the upper deck above the purple line, which were determined to be Mile High seats.

I haven't been there since 2004, but I loved it for the couple of games I went to that summer. We sat way down the left field line in the upper deck for a fireworks night. They shot the fireworks off behind the scoreboard in left field, and it felt like they were exploding at eye-level sometimes. It was quite something.

It definitely feels like a huge stadium.

Yes, my wife and I had dinner there when we were in Denver, really good meal (though, a little expensive).

Didn't get to do as much in Denver as we could have since we were just there for a wedding over the weekend, but we did catch a game at Coors Field, the park is nice, the neighborhood around it was very cool. A good time, definitely one of the better parks I have visited.
