How to Rockies Game!
Oh, Coors Field, How we love visiting you on a hot summer day! Picture this – you are sitting in Downtown Denver, drinking an ice-cold beer, and watching the Colorado Rockies knock the ball out of the park; life is good, right? We bet you are thinking, “Wow, that sounds great! But how do I do a Rockies game the right way?” Like always, we got you!
Fun Fact: The Colorado Rockies are only one year older than Headed West!
Three Ways to Rockies Game
It’s safe to say that we have done a few Rockies games, from the Rockpile to box seats and everything in between! Of course, there is no wrong way to do a Rockies game, but we will share some of our favorite ways with you!
The Home Run
Before Gameday, get some sleep to ensure you are well rested for the long day ahead because you will spend a whole day in Denver cause if you are gonna do a Rockies Game, you are gonna do it right!
This day starts 6 hours before game time! So, get an early start by packing some goodies ahead of time! First, grab an open bag, as Coors Field no longer allows backpacks, and fill it full with whatever you will need for a long day out. Then, hop on the RTD and head downtown.
Your first stop will be at the Wynkoop Brewing Company in the LoDo neighborhood. Once owned by former Mayor John Hickenlooper, this brewery was the first brewpub in Denver! Grab an early brunch on the patio and chill for an hour or two.
After you are fueled for the rest of your day, take a quick walk up to the Commons Park and relax riverside or walk up and down the endless trails and see all the South Platte River trail has to offer! Are parks not your thing? Then enjoy some time by heading down the Urban Putt mini-golf course located around the 16th street mall! After that, enjoy a relaxing stroll up around the 16th street mall and catch the Free MallRide shuttle back to Union Station.
Now that you have your Denver fill, head into Coors field, grab a hotdog and a beer, kick those feet up, and wait for the game to start!
There is no “Offical” Tailgating Allowed at Coors Field… so this is just something we “heard” people “might” do around Coors Field.
Pack your car with coolers full of favorite drinks, mini BBQs, snacks, fruit skewers, foldable chairs, and trash bags. We suggest you arrive 3-4 hours before game time and claim your spot. Then, start the hang-out sesh with other Rockies fans, listen to tunes, and enjoy the vibes!
For those that want a quick stop in Denver to hang out and party, be the “slider!’
You probably aren’t the biggest Rockies fan, but you LOVE Denver sports and local vibes, right? So grab a super cheap Rockpile ticket and enjoy a vibe like no other! The Rockpile gets rowdy, and, let’s be honest, they aren’t the best seats in the house, but it is a damn good time.
How to Get the Best Deals for a Colorado Rockies Game?
The Rockies’ official website is always the best place to score cheap deals for a game. When they know a game isn’t sold out, they usually run specials starting as low as $17. Sometimes they even run a Family Value Pack with four tickets, one parking pass, and $40 in concession credits for $59!
Some Rockies Games even have Special events like Movie Night, where you can stay after the game to watch a flick on the big screens! Look out for games marked with * as these games offer discounted items, free swag, or cheap tickets for first responders or military members!
Tickets for the Rockpile are around $7-$10, so if you wanna go cheap, you can!
Getting to Coors Field
Coors Field is located in the heart of Downtown Denver, 2001 Blake St, Denver, CO 80205, to be exact, and not everyone wants to drive their car and deal with all that messy parking. But maybe you do, and that’s cool too!
By Car – Parking Downtown can be crazy, but many parking lots are nearby. Unfortunately, they fill up fast, so buy your parking passes in advance!
By Bike – Bicycle parking is available near Gate E at the left corner of Coors Field at Gate A and across from Gate B at 22nd and Blake Streets.
By Bus – 20th and Blake St. is by far the closest stop, but it’s gonna be packed! So, try Park Ave West & Wewatta St., or 22nd St & Blake St. stops.
By Light Rail – Closest Stop is the 18th & California Station station or Union Station. Both are about a 10-15 minute walk to Coors Field.
