A Guide to New York’s Yankee Stadium

One of the best ways to enjoy New York City in the warmer weather is by visiting the iconic Yankee Stadium. Millions of people flock to the Bronx stadium yearly to watch the legendary New York Yankees step up to the plate and make baseball history. Since its revamping in 2009, Yankee Stadium has become home to much more than baseball games, so visitors are able to make an entire day out of their visit. Here are some things you can find inside the next time you go to watch a ball game.

Yankee Stadium Guide

Where to Eat

Baseball games are known for serving traditional New York City fare inside the stands, such as hot dogs and popcorn. While you can find these classics waiting for you, Yankee Stadium has also become the home for serving one-of-a-kind dishes thanks to the multiple restaurants set up in the stands. Like other city restaurants, each one takes classic American food and blends flavors from around the world that are sure to be a home run. Whether you’re in the mood for Harlem favorites from Streetbird, a traditional burger from Bobby’s Burgers by Bobby Flay, or a new kind of hot dog at Sumo Dog, this stadium’s food can’t be beaten.

Where to Shop

Sports fans love to take a piece of the game home with them, and Yankee Stadium makes sure that’s always an option. Visitors can find a number of different stores waiting for them inside that are filled with Yankees memorabilia everyone will love. You can buy your own replica jersey from your favorite player, a cap with the team’s logo or even merchandise from popular sports brands like Majestic and Nike. No matter which store you visit, Yankee Stadium is the place to be when looking for a piece of the team you love.

What to Do

While Yankee Stadium is best known for baseball games, visitors don’t have to spend the whole day watching one. The stadium is open to fans being a part of the action, whether it’s by learning about the history of the game or being up close with the players. Each activity allows visitors of all ages to learn about the iconic history of the team through hands-on experiences like Hands on History or the Yankee Stadium Museum, or they can snap a selfie with a player during Spring Training with The Inside Experience.

Stadium Tours

Yankee Stadium is a massive place that holds much more than meets the eye inside. You may think it’s impossible to explore it all in one day, but the tours you’ll find waiting for you want to change that. The stadium offers group and private tours to visitors looking to learn a little more about its history, so you can explore every inch in a little over an hour. The best time to go is during the off-season, and you can also find tours happening on game day where you can set foot on the stadium before anyone else. Opt for a classic tour to visit Monument Park and the Yankee Stadium Museum, a pregame/gameday tour to step inside before the crowds, or a Glimpse of Greatness—a 15-minutes self-guided tour of the stadium.

Around the Stadium

Yankee Stadium is one of the major highlights of the Bronx, but there’s much more inside the borough that also call it home. Visitors have the opportunity to be a part of nature thanks to the number of outdoor activities that can be found in the area, whether it’s walking through a garden or meeting some animals at the Bronx Zoo. There have also been recent efforts to explore the Bronx’s history further with museums like the Universal Hip Hop Museum. Top off your visit with a bite of local Jamaican and Dominican cuisine at the numerous restaurants sitting outside the stadium when the game is complete like Flavas International Grill.
