The new Marlins Stadium is probably one of the nicest ballparks. Many pricy food stands though.

After you come out you will probably be able to speak some Spanish since Miami has a large Cuban population.

This ballpark is the most appropriate building ever constructed in the Miami area. Anybody that knows South Florida knows that die-hard sports culture doesn't exist. Compare the amount of Heat tickets sold before Lebron signed. Watch the Dolphins play their division rival in front of a crowd of less than 40,000 people. The Marlins have been a more successful franchise than 90% of baseball teams in MLB, and the city doesn't care. Enter Marlins Ballpark. A place where you can go drinking, clubbing, walking, shopping, eating and play video games. The park is relatively empty anyway because going out to a sporting event is expensive (gas:$20, parking: $15, tickets: $22/ticket, food: $18/person).
Furthermore, almost 100% of the Marlins fan base lives north of Broward county. A stadium anywhere between Sunrise and West Palm Beach, FL would have undoubtedly drawn a larger crowd than an impoverished Little Havana neighborhood filled with people who clearly don't care about the team, never have cared about it, will continue not to care about it. I feel bad that these people have to put up with the inconvenience of this stadium, almost as bad as I feel for myself having to drive that far to watch professional baseball.

Pros: Food, cleanliness, entertainment, doesn't feel like a baseball environment
Cons: Prices, location, crowd, and once again; doesn't feel like a baseball environment

Got to enjoy a game from a box seat. Seats were super comfy and the view was great. Good food and great drinks. Loved the new stadium. Easy to get in and out.

Great Place to take your kids and enjoy a baseball game!
Air conditioned and good food and you always have something for the kids to do!

Very expensive venue to watch a ball game. Food is outrageously expensive plus the parking and the ticket. The stadium is beautiful and a one time visit with a team that is short of special is your afternoon. Definitely NOT for someone on a budget.
