- Built in 1995 at a cost of $215 million covered by sponsor Coors Brewing Company and local tax dollars, Denver's baseball-only stadium is a standout. Anyone who visits Coors Field gets an enjoyable experience, baseball fan or not. Games have a festive air no matter how the home-team Colorado Rockies perform and the facilities are kept sparkling clean. Guest Relations ushers are friendly as they chat about the team, hand out suntan lotion and even spritz fans with water during warm afternoons. The venue holds 50,000, with a row of purple seats circling the stadium at exactly 5,280 feet above sea level—the Rockies' tribute to Denver's "Mile High City" nickname. Mountain views are plentiful from the first-base side, The Rockpile is a fun time in bleacher seats for only a few dollars, and club-level fans get personalized food-and-beverage service. In addition to concessions stands around the stadium, visitors can also grab a beer at onsite Sandlot Brewery. Stadium tours are available year-round, focusing on Rockies history plus a look behind the scenes.
