Although I'm not a baseball fan, I attended a Orioles game with 20 of my neighbors and had a terrific time. The stadium is immaculate, seats offer excellent views and the food was good (although overpriced like most stadiums). Could bathrooms at other locations.

Seats are very good but need to be aware that many seats are in the sun for the entire time during day games Food choices are good and staff is very courteous

Enjoyed a business retreat in a suite coupled with some third-base line front row seats. As usual, the ambiance of Ed Smith is spectacular with great food, eats and drinks. The stadium is kept up very well and is great for friends, family & kids....More

On our Spring Training road trip, we saw four stadiums. This stadium had the clearest directions of where food, restrooms, and seats were. We thought the crab cake sandwiches were the best stadium food on the trip.

Not a bad seat in all of the stadium. Food is great, including crab cakes. Ice cream is some of the best ever.

THE BEST stadium for spring training games! The perfect way to spend an afternoon - or an evening! Everyone is happy - everyone is very helpful and pleasant! The Bird and his handler, Kathy, are more than happy to help if you want your picture...More

Not really, there are a few that are a short Uber ride to the downtown area. But close to there nothing worth talking about.
Can you bring a purse or bag in the stadium?

Yes you can it will be checked by security. And from what I saw it look like you can bring unopened water bottles

There is plenty of parking but I do think it cost $5. Some lots across the street might be free or down the street. I know some people park at a school on the weekends.
