What we liked: I wouldn't have necessarily thought about this as a toddler destination, but my son had a great time climbing up and down the stairs on the stadium and sitting in the seats. He had seen basketball games on television before, so this was particularly interesting for him. He even made a lap of the entire stadium exploring and looking around. The best part is it's free!
We also had a great time trekking to the stadium through Duke's campus. We parked at the student union, The Bryan Center, ate at the McDonalds in that building, checked out the bookstore for some Duke goodies, passed by the chapel and took a quick peek inside at the beautiful stained glass and architecture, wandered through Duke's campus exploring all the paths, trees, and flowers, and finally made it to the stadium. The journey was definitely half the fun!
What we would change: It's not a quick visit. There's no good parking right next to Cameron, so you do have to do a little walking to get there. Plus, Duke's campus is not the most stroller friendly place in the world.
In addition, since Cameron can be closed for the team's practice, it is probably best to call and make sure that they're open.

(This is the perfect outing for a Duke fan, but I would love to find out if anyone has checked out the stadiums at UNC or NCState.)
