An Isotopes game is an excellent experience for any baseball fan in New Mexico, and there is nothing better than tailgating beforehand. Isotopes Park’s location near the UNM campus makes it the perfect place for tailgating as you’ll find lots of space to set up shop in the nearby University Stadium lots. Everywhere you look you’ll see Isotopes fans tailgating, so come prepared to join in the festivities.
One of the best parts of tailgating before an Isotopes game is the unique blend of southwestern food you’ll find here. The cuisine here is quite different from what you’ll find in the rest of the country, so bring something to share and take part in all of the local delicacies.
Finally, it should be obvious that the fans in Albuquerque know how to tailgate as Lobos football games feature some of the best tailgating in the Mountain West Conference. Arrive early and make the most out of your tailgating experience when attending an Isotopes game.
