Road Trip An Itinerary for Oriole Park at Camden Yards

Camden Yards remains one of the best spots in the Majors to catch a game, and tickets are much easier to come by now. The park is situated downtown a short walk from Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and other attractions such as the National Aquarium. It’s fantastic but maybe better left for a non-baseball day. … After you’ve explored the Inner Harbor (touristy but worth a look), hit The Wharf Rat for one of their micro-brews made on site. But don’t stay too long … because you want to leave time to hit Babe Ruth’s Birthplace and Museum nearby. It’s a must for any baseball enthusiast and doesn’t take long to get through. … Before heading into the game check out the statute of the Babe on Eutaw Street outside the park, and stroll the busy plaza. … Once inside, walk around and enjoy what was the original retro park (besides the actual retro parks, of course, most long gone). There have been many imitators since but none that have matched it. … Be in your seat for the National Anthem and get ready to join fans in bellowing “OH!” during the last stanza. And sing along to John Denver’s “Country Boy” during the 7th-inning stretch. Don’t ask why, just do it. … You can get a crab cake at Camden Yards but locals know better. There are too many places on the outside where they’ll be much better, so don’t bother. Instead, head towards the billowing smoke beyond right-center field and Boog’s Barbeque. Have a barbequed pork or beef sandwich, and look for ex-Oriole great Boog Powell hanging around the stand. … Goes good with a craft beer from the local Clipper City brewery. … After the game, many fans head over to the Harborplace complex of shops and restaurants and the Power Plant, which is home to the Hard Rock Café and ESPN Zone. Better yet, walk over to the Federal Hill neighborhood and start at Mother’s, a local favorite, before moving on to other watering holes. The Ropewalk Tavern is a historic place that opened in 1788 and is worth a visit. … For dinner, grab a cab and take a short ride to Amicci’s in Little Italy, where the food is terrific.
