Coors Field will redefine a trip to the Mile High Club. The ballpark has a reputation for being a hitter’s park, so your team is guaranteed to score!
What makes this stadium unique?
Coors Field blends in with the surrounding Denver downtown with its hand-laid brick façade. The field is 21 feet underground to allow the ballpark to not dominate the neighborhood. The clock tower at the main entrance on 20th and Blake St. gives the stadium an old-time feel, though the park boasts all the modern amenities. Inside the dark green seats are broken up by a distinct purple row in upper deck signifying Denver’s mile elevation mark. In center field is a landscape of pine trees, fountains, and a waterfall that pay tribute to the Rocky Mountains. After a Rockies’ home run or win, the fountains shoot up. Above this and the batter’s eye is The Rockpile. These bleacher seats are ever popular with fans due to their price- $4! Children under 12 and seniors over 55 get in for $1.

Anyone an early riser? Snooze is an AM eatery only open until the early hours of the afternoon. Find a great breakfast or lunch with cage-free eggs and fresh ingredients. There are even a few adult items too. Start the day off with a Bloody Mary’s or Mimosa.

If this beer sounds familiar, it is. Breckenridge was established in the 1980’s and sends beer to stores across the nation. Try a main line, seasonal, small batch, or barrel aged beer from a company who knows what they’re doing. Check the website for tour dates and times.
