This is simply a great ballpark, widely recognized as one of the best in US, with a number of awards - e.g., "The Sports Facility of the Year" in 2011, ESPN Award for #1 Sports Stadium Experience in North America, and described by Ballpark Digest as "one of the best places anywhere to watch a baseball game no matter what the season or circumstances".
Great design, with a mix of classic (e.g., Twins sign in center field) and modern (limestone, glass, metal), offering uninterrupted views of the field (great seats everywhere, and plenty of places to stand, grab a bite and watch the game), with great mix of homages to Minnesota (native Minnesota limestone) and the Twins and Twin players everywhere - e.g., original flagpole from the old Metropolitan Stadium. And, beautiful views of downtown skyline. It's just top notch.
You have great transportation options - including light rail and great parking immediate outside park. And, great food - of every variety - with some Minn classics.
Hands down, our favorite ballpark.
1. Grab seats on the third base line - incredible views of downtown skyline.
2. Take a Tour: Take a group, or as we did, private, tour of stadium. Walk field, sit in dugout, see locker room, visit various clubs and pressbox, and get a feel for the incredible set of historic artifacts, memorabilia and mementos throughout the facility (the team's archivists / historians and the park architects & designers did an amazing job - items of significance and tributes throughout.

3. Hrbek's for Bloody Mary; Kramarczuk's for a Brat or real Polish Sausage.
4. If driving, come in off Hwy 394 into (Mpls downtown) where you see the A,B & C Parking Garages - and exit for Garage A. Go up ramp and exit to the side closest to Stadium. You can walk straight across street a few hundred feet and walk right into the Home Plate Entrance. At games end, it's a quick walk across, and minutes before you're back on to 394. Best parking any venue in MSP.
