Maryland stadiums rank #1 in the nation

There’s no place like home, especially when it comes to sports.

That’s why it comes as no surprise that Oriole Park at Camden Yards (OPACY) has taken top honors in Stadium Journey’s best experience rankings for the third year in a row. Camden Yards – located blocks away from Babe Ruth’s birthplace – opened in 1992 and is considered a trendsetter in the baseball community.

Stadium Journey credits OPACY with paving the way for new fan-friendly baseball stadium designs, saying, “If Baltimore had built a standard, boring facility, baseball may not look and feel the way it does now.”

M&T Bank Stadium also took home top honors, ranking number one in the NFL and #14 across all sports stadiums. According to the Baltimore Ravens, the franchise has made significant stadium upgrades over the past four years and will spend $120 million more on improvements in the next two years.

To compile the rankings, Stadium Journey staffers visited 761 stadiums across the country in 2016. Read the complete Top 100 list by clicking here.
