Fun Activities to Do in Comerica Park
Visitors arriving to Detroit during summer have the opportunity to enjoy the Tiger game (baseball) held at the Comerica Park. This ball park is an open air facility in downtown Detroit and is home for the Detroit Tigers belonging to the Major League Baseball of the American League. The historic Tiger Stadium was replaced with the Comerica Park in 2000.
The renaming of the park follows acquisition of naming rights by Comerica Bank which was headquartered in Detroit when the park opened. Comerica Bank has however moved its headquarters to Dallas though a large presence is still retained in Detroit.
Baseball enthusiasts will notice that the Comerica Park is a pitcher friendly facility opposed to the hitter friendly facility that the erstwhile Tiger Park was. Consequent to some strong criticism, the park underwent some dimensional corrections in recent times.
In current times, the stadium has a capacity of 41,070 and includes several baseball themed features like “Monument Park” (akin to the Yankee Stadium).
Apart from the baseball game itself, the stadium also offers other entertainment opportunities like merry-go-round and Ferris wheel etc. While buying tickets for the stadium, look for the terrace seats on level 1 so that you can also enjoy some shade and protect yourself from the summer sun. The rain gods also make an occasional visit to Detroit during summer. Finding parking at the stadium is convenient and even getting to the stadium is never a challenge.
Summer brings plenty of visitors to Detroit and therefore, booking your hotel rooms well ahead of your planned trip would be a great idea. You can scour the internet for a wide range of lodging options from bed and breakfasts to upscale or mid-scale hotels.
