Miller Park - Home of the Brewers

Remember when it felt like spring for a few days? Well, good.  Keep that memory alive because the wind is blowing 40-50 MPH today and it feels like Antarctica.  Since I want to be thinking about warmth, I figured I'd finally get around to posting some pictures from our trip to Miller Park in Milwaukee last fall.

A little background, we are on a mission to visit all the baseball stadiums in the country and it has been a really fun adventure so far.  We love baseball.  It was our first date and part of our engagement weekend and we have been getting ourselves to as many games as possible each summer.  This year, we live in a new place with 2 new parks that we've never been to and many more within road tripping distance.

Back to Miller Park.  This was a stadium that both Justin & I had visited before, but never together, so when we had a work trip to Milwaukee and we heard the Cubs were in town, we jumped on the chance.  This is a really cool ball park with a roof that swings open on beautiful warm evenings.  We were lucky enough to be in town on one of those evenings.



The fans were amazing.  The Chicago Cubs and the Milwaukee Brewers have a pretty decent rivalry, plus they are only about an hour about so there were lots of fans from both sides.  We sat next to some pretty rowdy Cubs fans which was very amusing.  The tailgating at the ballpark is fantastic.  The parking lots were full of grills, coolers, lawn chairs and bag toss (I refuse to call it corn hole.)





The food selection wasn't the greatest for vegetarians, but the beer selection was fantastic.  I would expect nothing less from a team named the Brewers.




The coolest part for us was seeing our first live Grand Slam.  The place went crazy and even though we aren't Brewers fans, it was still amazing to see live.



It was the perfect way to spend an evening out on the road.  It was fun to check another park off the list. Our official count is 7/30 and this will be a big summer for us.  What is your favorite ball park?

  1. We have the same mission to visit all the ballparks! Believe it or not, I've never been to Miller Park, even though I've been to Milwaukee a million times! Hopefully we can make it there in the next couple of years!

  4. It kinda reminds me of Minute Maid Park here in Houston (from your pics with the retractable roof)...I've always thought it would be cool to visit all the parks, too! I have a long way to go, though, seeing as I've only been to three, and two of those were here in TX! Ha!

  5. I had always called it bean bag toss until a couple of years ago when someone told me it was corn hole. That looks like a fun trip! Do y'all have a favorite stadium yet?

  7. First, your first few sentences made me laugh out loud-- sadly so true about the cold! Second, I love the idea of visiting all the stadiums! Baseball games are so much fun! I might be biased but Comerica Park is my favorite ball park!

  10. I always wanted to see a game at Miller Field. Looks like a fun park to catch a game at. Plus, the beer selection would be a winner for me!

  11. You have GOT to come to Kauffman Stadium. Such a gorgeous place to watch a game.
    p.s. - make sure it's a night game - the fountains are so pretty at night!
