Kauffman Stadium: Kansas City Royals

17 of 16

The Kansas City Royals’ Kauffman Stadium is not new, but it’s experienced a recent surge in fan appreciation. Thanks in part to a $250 million renovation finished in 2009, the sixth-oldest stadium in the majors (it opened in 1973) now offers one of the sport’s best game-day experiences. The 84’ x 104’ high-definition LED display screen is not only one of the world’s biggest, it’s also one of the most unique: Together with the massive golden crown atop it, the screen forms the shape of the Royals logo. Waterfalls flow constantly behind the fence in right field, where powerful fountains create a majestic backdrop between innings and before and after games. Grab one of 75 craft beers at Craft and Draft, and enjoy creative sandwiches from celebrity chef Andrew ZImmern or some barbecue at Sweet Baby Ray’s.
