The home of the Texas Rangers professional baseball team is one of the finest ballparks in the country. The graceful, redbrick-and-granite 50,000-seat stadium was designed (by the architect David Schwarz, a favorite in Fort Worth) to echo classic American baseball parks. The flat, painted billboards in the outfield with retro graphics and the absence of glaring neon lend a yesteryear feel to the park. It's a terrific place to see a game, even for folks (like me) who aren't huge baseball fans.

Even if you can't see a Rangers game (Apr-Sept), you can take a 50-minute tour of the park, which visits the dugout, press box, clubhouse, batting cages, and owner's suite.
