For adults, there are two open-air party decks, quality ball (the Memphis Redbirds are the Triple-A affiliate of the perennially powerful St. Louis Cardinals), and enough neo-classical architectural to make even the most diehard Monticello fan weep. We could go on, but Cal says it best: "It's just off the charts, and a can't-miss on any trip."
