The location on the Ohio River is gorgeous and the park is beautiful. Some of the friendliest fans in the game. The Great American Ballpark is one of the most underrated stadiums in the league.
How to get there
Right across the river, in Covington or Newport, KY is the best place to park. You can get cheap or free street parking. From there you can either walk across the bridge to get to the park, or get the Southbank Shuttle ($1) right to the front gates. This is absolutely the best way to get to the game.
Where to sit
Don’t sit in the outfield – you’ll miss the river view and the fireworks shooting out of the giant riverboat. Any seats in the infield (first or third-base) will set you up for a terrific experience.
This is an accessible stadium and they let you in for all of batting practice. A good place to get a ball and a good place to get an autograph.
What to eat
BEST ballpark food in all of baseball: Skyline Chili Cheese Dog!
