It doesn't get better than this: a Dodger Dog and a beer while catching a game! I always opt for the All Beef Dodger Dogs. For a Mexican spin, try the Doyer Dog (with cheese and jalapeños).
I'll admit it: I don't like baseball. Not even a little. But this stadium is truly a fun experience beyond the game. They have other things besides baseball going on all year round. I even went to a prom here, right on the diamond!
A favorite summer pastime for Angelinos. You must go to Dodger Stadium at least once if you live in LA and have a famous Dodger Dog.
Great stadium minus the expensive snacks – Dodger Stadium was much nicer than I imagined. It?s worth it almost to drive up there just see the skyline views of the L.A. from the parking lot, but obviously the real attraction is the ballpark. I loved how you look across the field and see ?Think Blue? on the hillside in the distance a la the Hollywood sign. The views of the game were fantastic from the mid-tier, where my seats were. But when I walked up to the upper level behind home plate, the views there weren?t even that bad. Only just having to pay $6 for a Dodger dog and around $8 for a cup of beer was. Wish I could comment on whether the game was worth the price of admission, but lucky for me, my seats were free.
A monolithic icon of early '60s architecture gloriously embodying the Los Angeles credo that size does indeed matter. – The Venue
At a time when baseball modernity has defined itself through references to distant history, Dodger Stadium stands as an artifact of the recent past, a forsaken time when bigger was better. This 56,000-seat stadium nestled in Chavez Ravine, honors that era, brashly and beautifully defying the current belief that baseball requires a small, intimate theater. Recent renovations, providing more parking, new suites and an expanded dugout section have only accentuated the stadium's expansive allure. Over the next 50 years, a stadium improvement plan will transform acres of parking lots into a landscaped walkway around the perimeter of the stadium, and add a striking tree-lined entrance leading to a grand plaza and a bustling promenade. The project's motto will be "Think Blue, Act Green," a sign of their efforts to make the stadium as environmentally responsible as possible.
Ever since its 1962 debut, Dodger Stadium has been hugely popular with Angelenos, who have purchased more than 176 million tickets to Dodger games, including 3 million in 1978, making the stadium the first in the majors to hit that mark. Certainly the fans abide by the L.A. traditions of late arrival and early exit, but there's still a special electricity to the crowd, an electricity that glows pure Dodger blue.
dodgers rock! – Dodger Stadium is a amazing place! They have great security. It provides food and beverages as well as the game. It is AMAZING!!!!!!
GO DODGERS! – It's always a great experience going to Dodger Stadium to watch a baseball game. The view of the playing field is breathtaking and sometimes was more entertaining than watching the Dodgers stink up the place with their lackluster offense and pourous defense last season. No matter what, the blue crew is my team through thick and thin. The Dodger management does have to do something about the "Raider Nation" element that seems to have permeated into the cheaper seats of Dodger Stadium. It just makes it difficult to bring younger ones when you have drunk cholos trying to start fights in the stands.
Best place for a concert – I haven't been for one of the famous Dodgers games, but I took my first trip there for the Police concert this past weekend. I absolutely loved the stadium. While outside the actual stadium buying drinks, the noise was drowned out enough that you could talk to the person next to you but inside the acoustic was amazing. Every seat has a good view. Just remember where you parked!!!!!! You'll wander for hours otherwise
HEAVEN ON EARTH! – Dodger Stadium is a true work of art and one of baseball's last classic gems. No Natonal League Stadium rivals Dodger Stadium in tradition, championships, and fan base. Great moments in baseball happened here that can be considered truly electric. Kirk Gibson's home run happenend here in 1988, Gagne, the greatest closer in baseball was shutting teams down in the ninth for three phenomenal years proving that Dodger fans could stay to the very end, and then four consecutive homers in the bottom of the ninth just last year agiants the hated Padres which then followed with Nomar's walk off home run to win it in the tenth. These moments have been engraved in my memory forever and being here to see the fans cheer along with me until my voice was gone, was simply awesome. You can experience great times, great food, great teams, and easy ins and outs at other stadiums but nothing will ever compare or mean anything unless it happens here. (maybe if the Dodgers win a World Series on the road) If you are true baseball fan you should be able to see why this is a truly remarkable park. I live in Orange County and I am only 5 minutes away from Angel Stadium. I just don't like Angel Stadium and it really has no life to it and so I would much rather drive in traffic for an hour to be part of a Dodger game. I like the feel of a National League game better anyways and will always be Dodger Blue. With anything that you love, you eventually learn to deal with the negatives and in this case with the stadium, you arrive early and leave late to avoid the traffic. You enjoy more of the game and eat & drink less so you have more money left. Well hope this helps you a little and maybe we'll be there part of some awesome moment again. True Blue, True Dodger Blue!!!!!
the best experience in baseball – I love this place. I moved to the US from the UK in the late 90's, visited here once and was immediately true blue and hooked on baseball. The view is great from just about anywhere, you can go cheap in the pavilion or expensive in the dugout club - or for the best value try the infield reserve. Sure some folks get boisterous after a few beers, but that is true in any sports stadium in the world - and I've been to many. If you don't want to risk it stay clear of the cheap seats
If you buck the LA trend and arrive for the national anthem you'll find parking a breeze and queues at the concession stands short. Stay to the end and you'll find the same.
Recently upgraded facilities make it even better, but I mourn the loss of the images of Koufax, Drysdale and others around the outfield wall to be replaced ads for the latest commercial sponsor. Soak in the atmosphere and stay True Blue - Go Dodgers! I love this game. On the downside the beer is hideously expensive
It's historic – The Dodger Stadium is a bit far and hidden but it's so much fun! Well, if you are going for the game or, like my friends...just for the Dodger dogs!!! It's a baseball game, the all-American pastime and every time I go I sit next to really awesome people...
Go Blue! – I've been coming here since I can remember. My father used to take my brother and I and we'd sit in the bleachers, looking at the players through binoculars and eating Carnation frozen chocolate malts, Dodger Dogs, and that oh-so-American staple, Cracker Jacks! I have been going more often recently and the experience is still awesome. There's tons of parking, the crowd is lively but civil, and the games have been a blast! I still load up on junk food and there's just nothing like those frozen chocolate malts! The concession walkers aren't too annoying and it feels the same as when I was a kid, which is probably the best compliment a ballpark can make.
Better than the Halos – Chavez Ravine, unlike that box where the Angels play, feels like a real baseball stadium. There's a lot of extra-baseball history looming over the field (see Ry Cooder's album), which add to the mystique of the places. That, coupled with all the recent renovations and you got yourself a pretty fine ballpark!
