Tailgate with Mickey
Angel Stadium may be the antithesis of urban ballparks like Wrigley Field and Fenway Park. The park sits amid a sea of parking spots in suburban Anaheim; don’t let the ‘Los Angeles’ in the team name fool you, L.A. is more than 20 miles away and can seem farther when you’re sitting in traffic.
The park is, however, easy to find, what with the 23-story high ‘A’ standing at the edge of the parking lot. That ‘A’ used to hover over the park and was the reason for its nickname, ‘The Big A.’ Unfortunately, a massive renovation years ago meant it was consigned to the parking lot.
Many Angels fans take advantage of the spacious lot to tailgate before games, while others gather at JT Schmid's Restaurant & Brewery. It’s within easy walking distance of the stadium located across the street from the Honda Center, home to the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks, and is usually packed with fans pre- and post-game.
The most popular attraction in Anaheim, though, is this little theme park you may have heard of, Disneyland. This is the original Disney park, opened in 1955, and it’s located less than two miles west of Angel Stadium. The adjacent California Adventure Park is also popular. Disney actually owned the club for several years before selling in 2003.
