Before Camden Yards, the area nearby was going to ****. I have only been once and enjoyed it. However, when talking to baseball fans, it is often at the top of their list. I think the wharf area combined w a nice baseball park adds to the experience. But I agree, the park seems average compared to the new ones. However, I saw a TV show that said every new stadium built in the last 20 years has consulted w and taken ideas from the Camden Yards people.
They often get large contingents of Red Sox fans, especially for weekend series. It is an alternative to paying a premium for Red Sox tics. Soutwest offers cheap flights from Boston to Baltimore. Oriole tics cost about 1/2 Red Sox tics.
