#30Fieldsin30Days: Marlins Park

What's more perfect than a day at the ballpark? 30 perfect days at 30 ballparks. 30 Fields in 30 Days is here to show off the can't-miss spots at each and every Major League stadium. Join us, then plan out an unforgettable day at your favorite park.

Miami's sparkling new park, opened in 2012, brings the diverse, energetic city's many flavors together under one very large, very adaptable roof.

Combining the colors of the city's fine art scene and architecture with the fun-loving attitude of South Beach, Marlins Park creates a festive environment around the game. Each long ball is occasion for a show from the home run sculpture in center field, and the stadium even houses a museum devoted to the bobblehead.

The one part of Miami you probably won't have to deal with? Rain. The massive, innovative retractable roof means no day is a washout at Marlins Park.

- Clevelander Marlins Park: Fans over the age of 21 can watch the game from a patio area that channels the classic South Beach hot spot. It's got DJs. It's got dancers. And yes, there's a pool.

- Fish tacos: Head to Taste of Miami and try some of the most unique fare in baseball. You won't have many opportunities to grab fresh mahi-mahi and mango salsa during the 7th inning stretch, so take advantage.
