I'm Visiting Dodger Stadium

Well, I'm going to California for vacation in a couple of weeks, and I'm looking forward to seeing a Dodgers game while I'm there. I would appreciate any advice that y'all could give me about the stadium -- for example, ticket availability/prices and where the best place to sit is.

Also, I have heard that traffic is always a nightmare around the stadium before and after the game...can anyone tell me where the best place to park is, or how I could avoid some of the traffic?

Thanks a lot.

I don't know how timely you will find my point of view to be, as I haven't been there in more than 10 years -- but here are a couple of things that might help.

Traffic is pretty bad around the stadium, but not insurmountable. If you can make the time before and after the game, you'll do OK. There are plenty of parking spaces, once you get to them.

And as far as I'm concerned, there is hardly a bad seat in the house. Once our group was placed out in Section 56 (see their site for reference). We thought beforehand that we would be stuck with a terrible view -- but they were clean, comfortable seats, with a good angle on the game.

Dodger Stadium, even after its Foxification, is still one of the great ballparks in the country.

The traffic can be bad, not really before the game (getting there early helps), but especially after the game, but if you know where you're going ahead of time, you'll be fine. It's really not that awful, and maybe staying a little after the game, letting some of the others leave, is a good idea. One time I missed the exit that we had to go on, and sort of had to go around the whole stadium, which is not a good idea. It also can be a little tricky getting around there and getting out of the lot if you're not used to it, so I'd try to know ahead of time where you're going to go before you get out into the traffic after the game.

As far as seats, there really isn't a bad place to sit. It depends on what you're willing to spend, and I don't think the prices are that bad around the stadium. Some spots probably do get up there, but I haven't looked at the prices in a while I'm not sure.

I love it there, I think it's one of the best stadiums in the majors.

Have a great time.

My advice: Don't wear anything related to the San Francisco Giants

Ah... when I'll be there in Dog Stadium, I surely wear the Giants' cap & jersey... ;)

THAT is some sound advice.

Ehh its not that bad. My advice would be to get there early and leave late. Youll avoid the 3 to 7 Dodger fan traffic. Oh, and get a Dodger Dog. They aint bad. And if you can, try to get tickets up in the top section of the bleachers behind home plate. Terriffic view of the city.

But my best bit of advice. Go to an Angels game instead.

You know, I wanted to go to an Angels game too (because I really enjoy baseball games and visiting new stadiums), but the Angels aren't in town while I'm over there.

Anyway, thanks to all of you for your help and suggestions. I am really looking forward to my Dodger Stadium visit. All I've heard is great things about it, and I am really looking forward to experiencing it for myself. If anyone else has any other tips, feel free to post them.

Again, I appreciate all of your help. And don't worry, I hate the Giants. :D
