Chase Field, home of the MLB’s Arizona Diamondbacks
, is all about exceeding expectations. Before the stadium was built in 1998, many Phoenix locals didn’t think their city would ever be able to host an MLB team. It was just too hot—temperatures during the regular season averaged around 99 degrees Fahrenheit and could climb much higher during the peak of summer. To compensate, Chase Field was equipped with a massive cooling system and retractable roof.
The ballpark hosts many other events including rodeos, college basketball and football, monster truck rallies, international soccer games and motocross races. A dozen or so concerts have taken place at the venue, including performances by Kenny Chesney, Joan Jett and Black Sabbath.
The ballpark is completely accessible and can welcome nearly 49,000 fans for Diamondbacks games. Concession stands offering a range of options are scattered throughout the stadium, and they won’t break the bank—Chase Field has recorded the lowest Fan Cost Index in the MLB multiple times. Fans can also bring in their own food, as long as it’s stored in a small, transparent plastic bag. Sealed water bottles, juice boxes and baby formula are also allowed. Items like hard-sided containers, outside alcohol, masks, professional camera equipment, umbrellas and noisemakers are prohibited.
The park is right in downtown Phoenix, so there’s plenty to do nearby. Family-friendly attractions like the Arizona Science Center and the Children’s Museum of Phoenix are a quick walk away, and there are dozens of hotels close by as well. Drivers will find several parking lots and garages in the vicinity, while commuters can access the park via the Washington and 3rd Street stations on the METRO rail network.
