4. Comerica Park– Detroit Tigers (June 12th-15th)
The Jays visit Detroit every year, and there are always a ton of Jays fans that make the short drive across the border. If you’re one of the ones that hasn’t done it yet, you’re missing out on an underrated gem that doesn’t seem to get talked about enough.
This is another ballpark with a fantastic view of the skyline, and really not a bad seat in the house. The proximity to the Canada/U.S border and to Windsor makes this destination even more appealing.
Food to try: Banh Mi
Not quite the traditional Banh Mi that you’re probably thinking of. This is a ballpark version that’s served on a hot dog bun that consists of bacon, shredded lettuce, and cabbage with a topping of sriracha aioli.
You can find it at the Big Cat Court, which is basically a food court within the ballpark. While you’re there, don’t forget to take a ride on the tiger carousel.
Local beer to try: Founders Brewing Company’s Canadian Breakfast Stout
It’s only fitting that you try the beer that has “Canadian” in the name, eh? In all seriousness, this is considered to be a world-class beer and one of the best of its kind.
A dark stout that has hints of chocolate, coffee, and maple syrup may not sound that appealing on a hot summer day, but just try it. You’ll be glad that you did.
