There’s nothing quite like a summer day at Comerica Park. The aroma of hotdogs lingering in the air, the roar of a tiger booming over the loudspeaker after each run scored, the sight of kids scurrying to catch a photo with PAWS; all make for an appealing combination of senses against Detroit’s colossal skyline. 

There’s no doubt about it — once you’re inside the ballpark, you’re almost guaranteed an enjoyable experience. But the hassle before and after the game can make a trip to see the Tigers seem like a hard day’s work. 

Consider cutting out the chaos and adding a new spin on your trip. Taking a charter bus to see the Detroit Tigers is not only affordable, it’s fun — and convenient.

The More, The Merrier
It’s hard to squeeze your whole crew into one car. Cramped rides are uncomfortable, but taking multiple vehicles doubles your parking fees. When you take a charter bus to Detroit for a Tigers game, your group can travel together comfortably, without having to worry about who’s driving home after a long day of excitement.

Comerica’s 150-foot stand-up bar debuted in 2016 and features 30 beers on tap. And don’t worry about securing a sober driver – you already have one when you travel by charter bus.  More of a foodie? You’ll be pleased to know that the ballpark has implemented Detroit-inspired food to their menu. Indulge your cravings knowing you can look forward to a post-game nap after you’ve consumed a days’ worth of ballpark food.

Parking Peeves

If you drive yourself and want to park anywhere close to Comerica Park, you’re likely facing at least $25 in parking fees. On top of that fee, you’ll have to walk a few blocks to get to the ballpark. Enjoy the convenience of being dropped off right outside the park.

When you charter a bus to Detroit, you’ll have plenty of time to peruse the concourse, check out souvenir shops, and settle into your seat. Don’t forget to stay for the fireworks show, which happens on Fridays and Saturdays during the summer.

If you’ve never been to Comerica Park, here’s a fun overview from MLB.com:
