Fodor's Review

Opened in 2009, the Mets' newest stadium was designed to hark back to Ebbets Field (where the Dodgers played in Brooklyn until 1957), with a brick exterior and lots of fun features for fans of all ages, from a batting cage and Wiffle-ball field to the original giant apple taken from the team's old residence, Shea Stadium. Even those who aren't Mets fans but simply love baseball should come to see the Jackie Robinson Rotunda, a soaring multistory entrance and history exhibit dedicated to the Dodgers player who shattered baseball's color barrier. While here, don't miss the chance to taste your way through the more-than-fabulous food court, Taste of the City, set behind center field (on the Field Level), where you'll find Shake Shack burgers, Blue Smoke ribs, close to 40 beer varieties at the Big Apple Brews stand, and even lobster rolls and tacos. Still feeling nostalgic for the old Shea? Stop by the Mets Hall of Fame & Museum, or check out the plaques designating the spots where Shea's old home plate, pitching mound, and bases were in what's now parking lot D. One-hour ballpark tours are conducted at least once per month, weather permitting; see mets.com/tours for up-to-date schedule and ticketing info.
