Enjoying the Sights at Great American Ball Park
The Reds have taken two NL Central titles in the past 4 seasons, ace Johnny Cueto is off to dominating start, and Billy Hamilton is sprinting towards the NL Rookie of the Year award. But there is more than just talent on display at Great American Ball Park these days -- thanks to scenic views of the bordering Ohio River, Cincinnati skyline, and state of the art ballpark features which give fans a true all-around experience on game day.
The most impressive and expansive views of the river belong to the patio at Redlegs Landing, but you'll need a group of 60 friends to get there. Fortunately, the outer view level seats down the left field line offer a good alternative and a budget friendly ticket price. Section 512 has great sightlines to the river as you look towards the right field corner, with the Roebling Bridge connecting Ohio and Kentucky in the background.
The gap in the north side of the upper deck was designed as a window between the ballpark and the Cincinnati skyline. Sitting in Section 140 gives you a head on view directly through and out to the city for a fun perspective with just a glance up from home plate. Other bonuses here include close proximity to the Budweiser Bowtie Bar and visitor's bullpen, home run potential, and a nice river breeze at your back. But remember the sunscreen for a day game as shade is not on this menu.
While it is not quite the complete package with your back to the skyline, lower view level seating behind home plate brings together the river, Central Bridge, scoreboard, and power stacks all at an affordable price. Sections 423 and 424 are directly in line with home plate for excellent view of the game, and there might not be a better seat in the house if you find yourself there on a Fireworks Friday.
