Atmosphere

The atmosphere around Minute Maid Park is a little bit calmer than other parks, but there is still plenty to see and experience while catching a game here. Tailgating is not allowed in the controlled parking lots surrounding the stadium, but there are some good bars in the area that many fans enjoy before the game. Nicknamed “The Juice Box,” what Minute Maid Park lacks in tailgating, the features, and amenities of the stadium and the surrounding town of Houston keep fans coming back.

Traditions

The Plaza on Crawford Street

The Plaza on Crawford Street immortalizes two of the Astros biggest legends: Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio. The statues capture Biggio completing a double play to a stretched out Bagwell and are a must-see for any baseball fan. Have your picture taken with the statues to commemorate your trip to Houston.

Ballpark Tour

Before the game take a tour of Minute Maid Park to learn more about the ballpark and see where the action goes on behind the scenes. No trip to Minute Maid Park is complete without taking a ballpark tour, so arrive early and see the facility in all its glory.
