Plan Your Baltimore Football Experience in Style
Football season is back, Baltimore!
If you’re as devoted to the Ravens as we are, then we know it must have been a long offseason for you. And while Sundays in the spring and summer just aren’t the same without Baltimore football, nothing snaps football fans back into action like getting out to the stadium and taking in the atmosphere of gameday in the fall and winter.
Lucky for us, the Baltimore Ravens and M&T Bank Stadium take care of their fans, giving them a wonderful gameday experience both before and during the game. However, we understand that planning out the best possible gameday is no easy task. So, to get you back into football season shape, we thought we would help you make the most out of your gameday experience.
Transportation to M&T Bank Stadium
Before you event arrive at the stadium, you’ve got to figure out a convenient and reliable way to get there. While M&T Bank Stadium does have on-site parking, the stadium lots are all sold to permit owners for gamedays. The only other way to guarantee yourself a parking spot is to reserve an off-site spot ahead of time, which could leave you walking long distances to get to the stadium and surrounding event areas.
We recommend using a Baltimore executive car service to get to the game. Nothing kicks off a gameday in style like chauffeured transportation. When you use an executive car service, Baltimore instantly becomes a city that’s easy to navigate. You are provided with the sights and sounds of gameday from the serenity of the back seat, as opposed to the road rage-inducing driver’s seat in heavier-than-usual traffic. For bigger groups, call a Baltimore executive limo service, especially when you’re heading to the game with business associates or clients. When it comes to convenience and reliability, personal and public transportation just can’t measure up.
Baltimore Gameday Events
As soon as you arrive on the scene and have utilized your executive car service, Baltimore Ravens football takes you over! There are a variety of gameday events hosted in the M&T Bank Stadium neighborhood that will surely get you pumped for kickoff.
The first event that you’ve got to add to your gameday agenda is the AAA Ravens Walk. Referred to as the “Ravens ultimate tailgate experience,” the AAA Ravens Walk features many different bars and food stations, family-friendly tailgate activities, and a live band and DJ at every home game. The event is located on the walkway leading from Oriole Park to M&T Bank Stadium, and starts up three hours before kickoff for every home game.
If you’ve got a ticket to the game, then you also have to stop at Miller Time Tavern, which opens two hours before kickoff and remains open throughout the game. Located next to Gate B, the Miller Time Tavern has all of your favorite Miller beers for sale, and even offers happy hour pricing for the first hour that the tavern tent is open! The Miller Time Tavern stays heated during those winter months, and is a great place to watch any other NFL action with its six flat screen TVs. The tavern is also home to the WBAL 1090AM live pre-game show.
The final can’t-miss feature of gameday in Baltimore is the Marching Ravens, the official marching band of the Baltimore Ravens. Starting 90 minutes before every home game, the Marching Ravens perform on the Eutaw Street walkway between Oriole Park and the Warehouse. Then, one hour before kickoff, the band parades down Ravens Walk all the way to the stadium. Catching the spirit of the Marching Ravens with every other fan is an integral part of a Ravens gameday.
Enjoy the Festivities
With this guide, you should feel fully prepared for gameday! After all, the stress transportation and planning pre-game festivities should have no place in your Ravens football Saturday. Once you get to the stadium in your Baltimore executive car (or Baltimore executive limo), let the Ravens Walk, the Miller Time Tavern, and the Marching Ravens make it a pre-game experience to remember.
Now, just sit back and let the Baltimore Ravens themselves make it a football game to never forget.
