This new park kept the same name as the old one and is also downtown in sight of the Arch. One thing that hasn't changed is the passionate fan base that packs the place to see their Cards. This franchise has a lot of history and you can experience some of it next door at the Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum. After the game head to the Italian neighborhood The Hill for a local delicacy, toasted ravioli.

Road Trip / Busch Stadium Itinerary Print It!

The St. Louis Cardinals have a long and illustrious history, and any visitor should take the time to soak some of it in. So plan to stroll around the stadium and visit the statues of former Cards’ greats Stan Musial – in Musial Plaza outside Gate 3 – Bob Gibson and Ozzie Smith, as well as legendary and late broadcaster Jack Buck. And don’t be afraid to give them a rub for good luck – in fact, it’s encouraged. … If it’s more Cardinals history you’re craving and you’ve got the time before first pitch, head to the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Fame Museum, located across the street. … Also close by is the famous Gateway Arch and the Museum of Westward Expansion along the banks of the Mississippi River. They are must-sees during your time in St. Louis, but leave plenty of time to do so. … Before heading into the game grab a Gus’s pretzel from a vendor; they’re a local favorite in the traditional German style. … Toasted ravioli is another St. Louis tradition and you can get it inside the park, although you may want to wait to hit The Hill after the game, the Italian neighborhood where the ravioli and everything else will be better than what’s served up at a concession stand. … St. Louis is beer city and Anheuser-Busch products are highlighted, not surprising considering the name of the park. If Bud isn’t your thing, have a Schlafly, a local micro-brew. … If you’re looking to get a little rowdy after the game, head to Al Hrabosky’s Ballpark Saloon just a short stroll from the park or the Broadway Oyster Bar, where they serve up Cajun and Creole food as well as bands playing jazz, blues, zydeco and bluegrass. … For some top eats nearby there’s J.Buck’s Restaurant or Mike Shannon’s, both very popular with fans. Better yet, the many restaurants of The Hill are a short car/cab ride away.

Wise Guide Tips / Know what the locals know, go where the locals go

At Wise Guides, we believe “spectator” should be a verb. Not because you should suck down 12 beers, run on the field and try to take the first baseman’s job — you shouldn’t. It’s because there’s so much more to going to a game than simply sitting in your seat watching the action. There are stadiums and neighborhoods to explore, food and drink to try, history to learn and interesting people to meet. Try our Wise Guides tips, they are funny, helpful and, we hope, interesting.
