I was really excited to visit Camden Yards. It started the revival of the "retro" ballparks, and I loved it. We stayed at a hotel in the Inner Harbor, so we were able walk to the ballpark.
One of Mel's coworkers suggested we check out Pickles Pub before the game, and it did not disappoint. It is a great place if you want a lively atmosphere with a lot of people going to the ballgame, but it might not be the best if you've got some little ones.
