Baseball season this year is in full swing (pun intended), which means ballparks are back to full capacity levels and eager to attract fans. But … what if you could move in to a city with one of the top USA ballparks – permanently? Would you be up for a relocation?
USA Today recently ranked all thirty Major League Baseball parks, and here were the top five, according to their metrics.
5. Fenway Park, Boston.
Since 1912, Fenway Park has been home to the Boston Red Sox in the American League. Fenway is the oldest active ballpark in America, and with world-class healthcare, higher education, a rich history, and walkability, Boston offers an abundance of old school charm to newcomers and current residents alike.
4. PNC Park, Pittsburgh.
Built in 2001, PNC Park has become recognized as one of the most iconic Major League ballparks. It’s widely considered one of the best ballparks in America because of the location, gorgeous views of the Pittsburgh skyline overlooking the Allegheny River, timeless design, and clear angles of the Pirates on the field from every seat in the stadium.
Pittsburgh also brings a diversity of neighborhoods, a fabulous sports scene, and multiple higher educational institutions.
3. Camden Yards, Baltimore.
The Oriole Park at Camden Yards plays host to the Baltimore Orioles and was constructed in 1992. This park sparked a new resurgence of modern-day retro ballparks. Additionally, Baltimore boasts a mild climate (between “north” and “south”), a rich history, a vibrant food and nightlife, and abundant employment opportunities.
2. Wrigley Field, Chicago.
If you’re looking for that quintessential baseball experience, look no further than Chicago’s Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. As the oldest ballpark in the National League, and second oldest in the MLB, Wrigley opened in 1914 and has hosted teams from the Cubs to the NFL’s former Chicago (now Arizona) Cardinals and the Chicago Bears. Not only does baseball abound in the summer, the city’s thriving beach, outdoor concerts, and summer festivals make Windy City summernights reason enough to move to Chicago.
1. Oracle Park, San Francisco.
Oracle Park is the perfect combination of food, fans, design, and location. Since 2000, it has served as the home of the San Francisco Giants. Previously named AT&T Park, the current naming rights were purchased by Oracle Corp. in 2019. Offering a lovely climate year ‘round, paired with access to the Pacific Disney-esque outdoor playground, inland wineries, and a killer culinary scene, folks moving to the Bay Area will early find themselves in one of the most desired places to live in America.
