The newly-completed CHS Field, the home for the St. Paul Saints, a minor-league baseball team. The stadium lies in the heart of lowertown, at the end of the "green line" light rail to Minneapolis (which ends, nicely enough, at the Minnesota Twins Target Field Station).

The previous Saints stadium was a shambling mess, hidden in the middle of nowhere, like so many attractions in the Twin Cities. Building a new stadium in downtown was a whip-smart move. This field looks spectacular, offers superb views from all seats, and is easily the best thing to happen to St. Paul in ages. Best of all: cheap-seat tickets are five bucks. Tickets to the new Minnesota Vikings stadium will run five thousand. Ouch.

ProTip: Actor Bill Murray is a part owner of the St. Paul Saints. He can be seen at games on rare occasions.
