Fodor's Expert Review Citi Field

Flushing and Corona Sports Venue Fodor's Choice
Citi Field, Queens, New York City, New York, USA

Opened in 2009, the Mets' stadium was designed to hark back to Brooklyn's Ebbets Field (where the Dodgers played 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 fabulous food court, set behind center field (on the Field Level), where you'll find Shake Shack burgers and Blue Smoke barbecue. Still feeling nostalgic for the old Shea? Stop by the Mets Hall of Fame & Museum. Ballpark tours ($20) are available year-round; see for schedule and ticketing info.
