2. Oriole Park at Camden Yards– Baltimore Orioles (May 29th-31st)
I tried to avoid stadiums in the AL East that the Blue Jays visit a lot but this one is just too good to pass up. If you can look past the fact that the Orioles are a terrible team, they’ve easily got a top 10 ballpark in the league.
The Blue Jays actually make three trips to Baltimore next season, the first one being at the end of April (on a weekend, but unpredictable weather) and the other being in September (middle of the week).
The three-game series at the end of May seems like the best option, as it is also from a Friday-Sunday. Often known as one of the first modern stadiums to be built, it opened in 1992 and is quickly approaching 30 years old.
It is most well-known for the warehouse that sits behind the right-field bleachers, which was already there before the ballpark was built.
Ah yes, Old Bay seasoning. A Baltimore tradition. Luckily there’s a restaurant named after the famous brand serving up fresh seafood right inside Camden Yards.
You can’t really go wrong with any of their options, but apparently, the fries are a must-have. Why not just buy multiple items? You’re on vacation, go nuts.
Local beer to try: Heavy Seas’ Loose Cannon American IPA
Its claim to fame is that each barrel is brewed with over 3 lbs. of hops and also hopped three different types of ways. They’ve nicknamed it Hop3 (hop cubed) which obviously just makes too much sense.
