Tailgating isn’t a huge part of Utah sports culture, and it’s just making headway at the college football level, and as a result, you won’t find a ton of traditional tailgating surrounding a Bees game. That said the Bees offer affordable parking near the stadium, so you’ll have no trouble parking near the ballpark and exploring the neighborhood.
One of the must stops when attending a Bees game is Lucky 13 Bar & Grill. Lucky 13 is only around a block away from Smith’s Ballpark and is home to the best burgers in Utah making it the perfect place to grab a bite to eat before the game. Lucky 13 also is home to an excellent selection of drinks as well making it one of the best pregame destinations in the Salt Lake City area.
Arrive at the ballpark early and enjoy everything the neighborhood near Smith’s Ballpark has to offer.
