Located in the Lower Downtown (or LoDo) area of Denver, Coors Field opened in 1995, which was a couple years after the Colorado Rockies came into Major League Baseball. During those first 2 years, the Rockies played in Mile High Stadium, which was more known as the home of the Denver Broncos.
Being a few blocks from the 16th Street Mall, it is not hard to reach by public transportation. That is, once you are into downtown. So if coming by car, it would be better to park farther away from the ballpark area, and then walk to 16th Street, and take advantage of the free shuttle. Also, there are cheaper eating options outside and near the ballpark.
Having a reputation as a hitters' ballpark, as so many home runs were hit there, resulting in high scoring games. It was found out that the dry air was the cause, so a humidifier was built. That did cause a decrease in the number of home runs, but still more hitter friendly.
Some features in the ballpark include Purple Row, which is a row of seats that is exactly 1 mile above sea level. As the name would indicate, the seats in this row are... well, you guessed it... purple. All the other seats are green.
There are fountains behind center field, which go off whenever the Rockies hit a home run or win the game. And in the distance, you can see the Rocky Mountains. It does look nice when the sun is setting.
There is also a wall of history, which has records and firsts in Rockies history, like the first home run and most RBIs in team history.
With some interesting features in a good location, and on a good day, a good view of the Rocky Mountains, Coors Field is a very nice place to watch a ballgame. And that's considering how the team itself does not have much of a history.
