About Angel Stadium of Anaheim
Despite their name, the Los Angeles Angels make their home in the city of Anaheim at the aptly named Angel Stadium. The Angels have called the ballpark their home since it opened under the name Anaheim Stadium in 1966. With over 50 seasons of use under its belt, Angel Stadium is the fourth-oldest stadium in the majors.
Best Places to Sit at Angel Stadium
Naturally, the best place to enjoy Angel Stadium sporting events is from the park’s club sections, which make up the 300-level of the stadium directly below the suites. While these aren’t the cheapest Angels tickets, they offer good value and aren’t crazy expensive. In particular, the MVP club section is a great deal because it’s directly behind home plate, offering a lovely view of the ballpark as well as easy access to concessions and restrooms.
Tips for Visiting Angel Stadium
If you feel like taking a stroll around the concourse before or during the game, stop by to check out the pile of rocks in left-center field. (Yes, for real.) This is actually called the Outfield Extravaganza, and those rocks aren’t randomly assembled – they’re meant to resemble California’s coastline. Outside the team store on the 100-level is the Angels’ World Series trophy from 2002, as well as other memorabilia from that year’s championship team.
If you’re going to an Angel Stadium event, you should also know that pre-game tailgating is limited. Charcoal grills and alcohol are both frowned upon in any official stadium parking lot, so bring prepared food and plastic cups if you want to have a pre-game party.
Food to Try at Angel Stadium
Fans are free to bring their own snacks into Angel Stadium, but you might prefer to take advantage of the tasty food options inside the ballpark. The menu includes the Sonora dog, a hot dog covered in bacon, guacamole, pinto beans, and pico de gallo. There's also the short rib dog, which includes cheddar cheese, fried onions, and chili. Finally, Angel Stadium includes a Chronic Tacos, a scaled-down version of the chain that provides fans with tacos, burritos, and nachos.
