Definitely try to stop by Eutaw Street pre-game if you can, where you'll find plenty to see and lots to eat. For those with children, there's a Kids Corner near Gate C. The Bullpen Picnic Area is just beyond the center field fence, overlooking the pitching warm-up area and is a gorgeous spot to visit in summer.
As of 2012, there is the brand new Roof Deck, a covered bar area open to all ticket-holders which is adjacent to the center field scoreboard. Check out the views from there - not too shabby.
In the club level and upper deck, you find wider, more comfortable seats which were just upgraded. Sightlines are better than previous seasons, with less-intrusive railing also installed. These changes do mean a slightly lower capacity. If you find the game is sold out, try to grab some standing room only tickets which place you in a designated area on Eutaw Street.
With the Left Field All-Inclusive Pavilion Perch, you can get a club box seat, access to the exclusive Club Level at Oriole Park, as well as unlimited food like hot dogs, nachos, and other traditional items. Tickets are $45 in advance and $50 on the day, although they can be slightly more for higher profile games. We think this is a pretty good deal if you plan on dining on standard ballpark fare. (alcohol will cost you extra)
Food and Drink:
2011 brings new local fare to the park. Crab cakes are among the new items and one of our favorites. Another new addition is the intense sounding Birdland Hot Dog found at Polock Johnny's Famous Polish Sausage. It's topped with smoked pit beef, pepperoni hash, stewed tomatoes, and crispy onions. Check out the new Baltimore Chop House too, where you can grab a steak and egg sandwich. For dessert, find a Berger cookie, a local favorite for years, and another new addition.
There are also plenty of great beers inside. National Bohemian Beer at the Natty Boh Bar can be found on the first-base side of the the lower concourse. Free State Pub (third-base side, lower concourse) features Maryland and regional craft and specialty beers. Try a Dogfish IPA or Flying Dog. If you're not a craft brew fan, or don't want to spend the money on one, there are plenty of other options like Bud, Coors, as well as imports like Guiness and Stella Artois.
New to 2012: Gino'sBurgers and Chicken, and Stuggy's (specialty sausage and hot dogs based in Fell Point) near the Bullpen Picnic Area and Dempsey's Brew Pub and Restaurant on Eutaw Street is named for and partly owned by former player Rick Dempsey. Dempsey's features beers brewed on the premises: Wild Pitch Wheat, Rick's Red Ale and Rain Delay IPA to name a few.
Located near the Inner Harbor, one of the most visited areas of the city, Oriole Park at Camden Yards maintains the feel of an early 20th century park with its "retro-classic" style. Open since 1992 and sitting on land that was once a rail yard, the park is one of the most highly praised in baseball.
Just beyond right field on the other side of Eutaw Street is the B&O Warehouse, the longest building on the East Coast. It holds the Orioles' main offices as well as a few public facilities like The Bud Light Warehouse Bar and a large souvenir shop. Separated from the park by a 60 foot promenade, it's a pretty interesting stop pre-game if you have the time. You must have a ticket to walk through Eutaw Street on game days, and there's plenty to check out there too - like Boog's BBQ - highly recommended.
With it's convenient location, there a lot of places to check out in the neighborhood before or after the game as well. About a mile east is Harborplace - an outdoor mall with plenty of shopping and dining options, or stop by the Babe Ruth Museum - only a blocks away. If you want something a little less touristy then hit up the Federal Hill neighborhood and drink and eat with the locals. Check out some of the bar and restaurant icons on our exterior map for some suggestions.
General parking without prepaying is available at Lots F,G, and H (off Hamburg and Sharp Streets) or you can purchase online parking through the Orioles on a per game basis and get into a closer lot. Visit their site HERE.
Also be sure to check our parking map on the exterior for other options. A good spot may be the Maryland Medical Center (701 W. Pratt) which opens it's garage for events and is only $8 and right off I-95.
Camden Yards Station (at Howard and Camden) is on the far side of the B&O Warehouse and is served by the Baltimore Light Rail and MARC commuter rail (last stop on the green line with Union Station in D.C. on the other end) For more info on schedules, go to www.mtamaryland.gov
Also be sure to read our "Info Inside the Stadium" section for more information inside the park.
