Destination of the Day: Busch Stadium, Saint Louis, MO

Destination 4 in the series "Opening Day!"


Opening Day is 2 April at 3:10 pm against the San Diego Padres. This 43,975 seat stadium literally took the place of Busch Memorial Stadium with the new outfield well within the previous stadium's (see photo below) footprint.  The remaining space will be the home of BallPark Village, envisioned as a complex of condos, office towers, and retail/entertainment.  For CTers, you are in luck-MetroLink has two nearby stations and Illinois and Missouri have been improving the rail links between Saint Louis and Chicago and Kansas City.  Another plus is that the stadium is surrounded with blocks of bars, restaurants, and other activities within easy and safe walking distance.
