AAA Editor Notes
Minute Maid Park is downtown at Crawford St. and Texas Ave. Home of the Houston Astros, the baseball stadium seats 41,500 and features a retractable roof which can close in 12-20 minutes. Adjacent to the natural-grass field is Union Station, a renovated train terminal built in 1911. A 25-percent-larger-than-scale replica of an 1860s steam locomotive runs more than one mile inside the facilities. Guided 90-minute tours cover more than one mile; Early Bird tours before Astros home games also are offered.
Note: Comfortable walking shoes are recommended.
Guided tours are available.
