Cheer On the Bulls

Bull City essentials: top notch sports with a dash of personality. Enjoy a few hours of American entertainment in the heart of Durham courtesy of the Durham Bulls.

By Chelsea Pieroni
Whether you played ball as a kid or not, there's something evocatively nostalgic about a hometown baseball game. From the smells and noises to the traditions and entertainment, baseball has that little bit of magic that just can't be replicated by other live entertainment experiences—and the Bulls offer the best in the area!

Anchoring the renovated American Tobacco Campus in downtown, the Durham Bulls Athletic Park brings in thousands of energetic fans every season to watch the home team battle. Due to the inimitable location, it's accessible to parking, great restaurants, and great bars. There's also nothing "minor league" about the Bulls stadium, except that it will only set you back a few bucks to get your nose in the action. The price of a major league ticket will get you the best seats in the house in Durham.

The entertainment itself is A+ for the whole family. Besides the on-field action, the Bulls are always thinking of inventive new ways to keep you entertained during the 7th inning stretch and in-between innings, with themed game-nights, summer fireworks, dog days and great eats at all times. If you can, try to grab a picture with Wool E. Bull, one of the best minor league mascots in the country. But that's not all—as of 2015, DBAP has a concessions stand with Rise's delicious donuts and a Bulls' very own brewery—the Durham Bulls Beer Co.—overlooking the entire park. It's gonna be a great summer.
