A required stop for baseball fans, Great American Ballpark is much like most ballparks constructed during the modern era--great sight lines, relatively comfortable seating, sufficient restrooms, and a variety of concessions.
Among the original cities for Major League Baseball, Cincinnati has very devoted and knowledgeable fans--so the emphasis during games is actually ON baseball and not as much glitz as some ballparks (I'm primarily thinking of my home Arizona ballpark that has to entertain people with non-baseball material). The biggest surprise for this Cardinals fans was the relative emptiness of the stadium--this was during the last month of the regular season with a red hot division race going on between bitter rivals, and the stadium was only half filled for both games I saw!
If you're visiting from out of town, the stadium is very accessible and is easy walking distance from any of the downtown Cincinnati hotels... or even many of the hotels on the south side of the Ohio river.
Also, be sure to visit the Red Hall of Fame right next to the park and add the stadium tour to see behind the scenes at Great American Ballpark. It's more than worth the admission price.
