Oriole Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore, Maryland

Home to the Baltimore Orioles, the city's Major League Baseball team, Oriole Park at Camden Yards opened in 1992 and heralded a new era in stadium construction. Eschewing characterless multi-purpose suburban stadiums, Oriole Park recalls the classic city feel of old-fashioned ballparks like Boston's Fenway Park, but with the latest state-of-the-art facilities.

Located in the old railroad hub of Camden Yards, it's on the Inner Harbor flair in the heart of downtown Baltimore. Fittingly, it's just two blocks from the starting position of baseball's most mythical hero, George Herman "Babe" Ruth. Ruth's father operated Ruth's Cafe on the dead floor of the clan house, a stall that is now in the central orchard of Oriole Park.

The modest home in which Babe Ruth was born is now a museum, and a statue of Babe Ruth sits tucked away outside the park. You can tour Oriole Park for a behind-the-scenes look at the press box, club levels, and dugout.
