What to do in Los Angeles: Go to a Dodger Game!

"Peanuts! Get your peanuts!" Says the old gentlemen that has probably been working at the stadium for 40+ years.
You reach for your Dodger dog and garlic french fries. Maybe you'll get some peanuts when he comes back.
*CRACK* You hear the sound of a bat connecting with it's target. You automatically throw your hands over your face. You don't know where the ball went, it could be anywhere and you were eating your french fries! Then, you see it. Going, going, and it's gone! Home Run for the Los Angeles Dodgers! The crowd goes wild and excited fans are high-fiving strangers.

Ah, baseball. The ultimate American past time, there's nothing like it.

I know it seems like a trek for us Westsiders, but it's really not that bad. Just give yourself a little extra time to get there and listen to nice, calming music to avoid potential road rage. Good conversation is always a nice distraction as well. Parking is easy. If you buy your parking pass online in advance, you save a few dollars. Bring a jacket, it will get a little chilly as the sun goes down.

Tickets start at $30 for the nosebleeds (the energy level from the fans in this section is exceptional) and end at $1,050 for the dugout club.
