Dodgers Stadium Tour

My boyfriend and I love going to sporting events when we travel! So we made sure to buy tickets for a baseball game while we were in LA. We were also super lucky that the Red Sox, our favourite team, were in town on the same dates as us! So, on our second day in LA, we headed to Dodgers Stadium for a game. We also decided to go on a pre-game tour of the stadium, to learn a little more about the team and to get a glimpse of what goes on ‘behind-the-scenes’ at the stadium.

We really enjoyed the tour and found it super informative! The guide was very entertaining and we even got to see a few players (and former players) as we were walking around the halls! The game itself was unfortunately a little disappointing since the Red Sox lost 3-0, but we still really enjoyed our day!

After the game, we decided to go check out Hollywood since we had never been. We were a little overwhelmed by the amount of people there, especially along the Hollywood Blvd. We roamed around for a little, then headed to dinner at the Hard Rock Cafe nearby and headed back to our hotel afterwards. As you can see in the vlog, I didn’t end up filming much after the baseball game, mostly because there were simply wayyyy too many people around!

Hope you enjoy the footage from our day at Dodgers Stadium! Do you guys like going to sporting events when travelling? We often plan our dates according to when certain games are, haha! Make sure you check out my post on Universal Studios Hollywood if you’d like to see what we did on our first day in LA!

    Cool post! I’m not a huge fan of sport on T.V but a live game is always exciting. I visited the US in the off season but did get to a WNBA game and loved it!

    My fiance and I love sports but we’ve never thought to take a tour of another team’s stadium while traveling. Genius! I’m a Kansas City fan and have been on tours of both Arrowhead (football) and Kauffman (baseball) many times. Will definitely be checking out stadiums of other teams in the future!

    How fun! I love touring Baseball stadiums when traveling but surprisingly I haven’t seen my (hometown) Dodgers stadium yet. Oops!

    What a fun tour! I really regret not going to a baseball game while I was living in the U.S. for work – love that you get to learn a little more about the history behind the game!

    That’s so cool! I’m not into sports that much, but my fiance is. Football is more his thing though, being English! I think I see stadium tours in my future haha.

    Looks like a great day. Being from Oz I’m not a massive baseball fan but I did catch a game when I was ain NY and I must confess a soft spot for Jeter. It’s not the same without him!

      I’m sure it’s a similar feeling! I went to a football game while I was in Italy, but didn’t get to go on a tour — wish I had though!

    I always try to incorporate a sports event whenever I can while I travel. Some of the sporting events that I have seen while on the road include the Cleveland Indians, Detroit Tigers, Cincinnati Reds, Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Penguins, Los Angeles Kings, Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Fire, New York Yankees (both at Old Yankee Stadium & New Yankee Stadium), Chicago White Sox, Indianapolis 500, 2014 NHL Winter Classic, a soccer match in Belize, and World Cup 2014. Ultimately, I want to watch at least one game in every single stadium or arena in the Big 4 here in North America: NHL, NFL, NBA and MLB. I would also enjoy watching a game in every Major League Soccer city, as well.

    If there are no sporting events going on while I am in town, then I will do a stadium tour instead where possible. So far I have visited Monument Park at Yankee Stadium and have done tours of both Soldier Field and Wrigley Field when I was in Chicago a few months ago. Both highly recommended tours, BTW!

    Really cool that you did a tour of Dodgers Stadium when you were in Los Angeles. I was there back in January 2015, so I didn’t even think to see if a Dodgers Stadium tour was even possible during the MLB off season. But I will definitely return to California again in the future for a MLB/MLS sports related trip at some point. Will definitely check this tour out then.
