THE HEARTBEAT of the Ballpark District is of course the amazing Minute Maid Stadium. Located in downtown's old Union Station, Minute Maid Park features a vintage, full-sized locomotive that runs along  the left-field wall, retractable roof and a truly classic atmosphere complete with red brick masonry and natural grass.

Surrounding the ballpark is an array of iconic restaurants and old warehouse buildings that have been converted to lofts and unique office space.
