Tips for visitors headed to Miller Park to watch the Brewers MILWAUKEE'S Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers, is rated as one of the best in baseball by sportswriters and sportscasters and by fans. But unlike some Major League stadiums, it is a few minutes driving time from downtown and not within walking distance of major hotels. Here are a few tips for first-time visitors and even returning fans: Leave the driving to others Many hotels and restaurants in downtown Milwaukee and surrounding communities provide shuttles to and from home games. Two of the most popular downtown Milwaukee shuttles depart from The Milwaukee Brat House, 1013 N. Old World 3rd St., and Trinity•Three Irish Pubs, 125 E. Juneau Ave. Both of the restaurants provide free shuttles to all home games and are well worth a stop before and after. Closer to Miller Park is a restaurant that has been shuttling fans to Brewers games since the team arrived in town and played in the old County Stadium. Saz's State House at 5539 W. State St. is close enough to the stadium to provide a quick getaway for fans in a hurry to return home or to their hotel. Many fans, however, linger at Saz's to replay the action. Avoid traffic backups While most drivers arrive at Miller Park via exits from I-94, savvy fans have learned to slip in smoothly by using Canal Street. Best known as the location of Potawatomi Bingo Casino, Canal Street is reached by driving south from downtown on N. 6th Street. Turn west on Canal Street at the Harley-Davidson Museum for a quick and easy entry into the Miller Park lot. For the best seats You can expect many sold-out games this season at Miller Park. But choice seats can still be had if you check or visit the respected Milwaukee-based ticket company at 751 N. Broadway. OPEN EVERY DAY AT 11 A.M.
