Throughout the month of July, you and your family have the chance to get a real, behind-the-scenes look at Minute Maid Park. From the historic Union Station to the luxury suites, broadcasting booth and presses boxes, and the Astros’ and visitors’ dugout, you’ll have the opportunity to see absolutely everything Minute Maid Park has to offer.
Attend an Upcoming Houston Astros’ Games
After taking a tour of Minute Maid Park, you can, of course, catch an exciting Major League Baseball game. From July 5-15, the Houston Astros will be playing at home against the White Sox, Athletics, and the Tigers. Then the 27-29, the home team will be playing the Rangers.
While the kiddos probably enjoy watching the game, there are other amenities just for them as well. The Minute Maid Squeeze Play area along the right field gives kids a safe place to run around. Then there’s the Conoco Home Plate Towner along Texas Avenue where fans gather and can often find live music.
Last, but definitely not least, is the ballpark food, and you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. At Brew House Fry, you can enjoy fresh-cut fries, before stropping off at Cookies and Creamery and Ice Cream for countless ice cream flavors loaded up in an Astros Souvenir Helmet.
History of Minute Maid Park in Houston
Built as a replacement of the Astrodome, which was actually the first domed sports stadium built in 1965, Minute Maid Park is located in the heart of Downtown Houston, Texas. This is home of none other than the Houston Astros of Major League Baseball, and this stadium was actually Houston’s first retractable-roof stadium with a seating capacity of more than 41,000. Since being built, this stadium has won major awards like the Greater Houston Preservation Alliance’s 2000 Good Brick Award, been named Most Outstanding Civil Engineering Project, and received the National Honor Award for Engineering Excellence.
