AAA Editor Notes
Minute Maid Park is downtown at Crawford St. and Texas Ave. Home of the Houston Astros, the baseball stadium seats 41,963 and features a retractable roof that can close in 12-20 minutes. Adjacent to the natural-grass field is Union Station, a renovated train terminal built in 1910. A vintage locomotive runs on 800 feet of track on the left-field wall of the stadium. Guided 1-hour tours cover more than a mile of the facilities; Early Bird tours before Astros home games also are offered.
Note: Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
Guided tours are available.
