Target Field, the new home of the Minnesota Twins baseball team, is not a site to be missed while exploring the city of Minneapolis. It is easily accessible with a rail stop directly at the field, a Metro Transit bus hub on-site, and more than 20,000 parking spaces. The brand new ballpark, which sees its first Major League Baseball action in April 2010 when the Twins play the Red Sox, is located in the Warehouse District adjacent to the Target Center. Target Field is replacing the Metrodome as the Twins' home field, and it is designed in the old-fashioned concept as it is not enclosed. With this change, Twins fans are able to take in sweeping views of the Minneapolis skyline, which are said to be some of the best vistas of any ballpark in the country.
The Target Center is also another reason to make the trip to Target Field. It is just a few minutes walk from the new field and is the home court of the NBA's Minnesota Timberwolves and the WNBA's Minnesota Lynx. It also serves as one of the main entertainment venues of the Twin Cities. Each year, it plays host to bands, orchestras, tournaments, and family shows. The convenient location of the Target Center is obvious with the slew of restaurants and accommodation options that surround the center near downtown Minneapolis. From bars to fine-dining venues, a fun-filled night at the Target Center is certainly affordable for everyone.
Visitors to Target Field will be greeted by Target Plaza, the main entrance to the ballpark. This beautifully landscaped entrance will also serve as a tribute to past Minnesota players and ballparks, such as the Twins original home of Metropolitan Stadium, whose former location is now occupied by the Mall of America. As you enter the new ballpark of Minnesota Twins baseball, you will be surrounded by 40,000 seats and stunning views of downtown. The new seating arrangements include 60 suites, 4,000 club seats, a double-decked grandstand, and the Budweiser Roof Deck. There are amenities located on each deck with various food options, restrooms, and beverage concessions. Fans can now choose from various themed dining options throughout Target Field with the addition of the Town Ball Tavern, Hennepin Grill, Senor Smokes, and Frankie V's Italian. The affordable dining concessions present any visitor with great choices to enjoy a meal and take in the excitement of a Twins game.
No matter what budget you are traveling on, you can definitely fit in a baseball game or two with affordable Target Field tickets. The experience of being at a Minnesota Twins baseball game is a true insight to the American baseball culture. Target Field tickets prove to be quite affordable, as there are plenty of standing room and grandstand tickets available. These are among the best places to view a game anyway, since you'll be in the heart of the fans. Compared to ticket prices of other ballparks throughout the country, tickets here are a steal.
