Angel Stadium is the home ballpark of The Los Angeles Angels, and is located in Anaheim, California. Angel Stadium was once home to the Los Angeles Rams, before they became the St. Louis Rams, but was reconstructed into a baseball stadium in 1966. In 1996, the stadium underwent major renovations; the parking not only had to be reconfigured but additional parking became necessary.
There is one very large parking lot that serves as the official lot of the stadium, but since it is one very large lot, exiting after the game is very complicated. The fact is that there are cheaper and more easily accessible options nearby that are simply going by unnoticed. With some quick preparation, a driver can be educated on the tips, tricks, and layout of this expansive stadium.
