With Opening Day behind us, baseball season is in full swing. And if you’re a baseball fan, San Diego is calling your name! From a state-of-the-art stadium in the heart of downtown to memorabilia collections and sports bars galore, San Diego is the perfect baseball getaway for any fan of America’s favorite pastime.
This week in San Diego, enjoy America’s favorite pastime with a baseball game during the San Diego Padres home opener week and/or one of these other top things to do:
The Padres’ season is upon us, and as fans flock into one of the country’s best ballpark (just ask TripAdvisor), visitors to San Diego’s Petco Park better come armed with a good appetite. Locals know that the great food offerings within Petco set it apart from other ballparks – Filippi’s Pizza Grotto, Anthony’s Seafood, and Ballast Point Brewing Co. are just a few of the San Diego food and beverage favorites you can find within Petco’s walls.
But why limit your options when you’re within walking distance of more than 200 restaurants? Before and/or after the game, head into the streets of Downtown to explore a wealth of dining options, from global flavors to classic American burgers.
Spring is a time of longer days, warmer temps and renewed energies – it is also the perfect time take your lightened heart and visit San Diego, where springtime activities abound. From desert blooms to Zoo babies, San Diego is certain to enliven your spirit this spring.
Tonight, July 21, 2012, enjoy the warm summer evening with America’s past time as the Padres take on the Colorado Rockies. After the game, sit back, relax and marvel as the night sky is lit up with a brilliant display of color during the Summer Sky Blast, Petco Park’s largest fireworks display!
The U.S. Travel Association’s “Vote Travel” Bus arrives to San Diego on Thursday, April 19, and you have a chance to win tickets to a future Padres game! We’re giving away two (2) sets of Four (4) tickets to watch the Pads v. Brewers on May 8, or the Pads v. Angels on May 18.
Major League Baseball returns to San Diego today when the Padres host the L.A. Dodgers in the season opener for both clubs.
That means the start of 81 home games in the East Village between April and September. With San Diego’s perfect weather, PETCO Park is the place I want to spend my summer evenings. Since I couldn’t wait for the season opener, I took my family for a preseason contest on Tuesday to get my baseball fix a little early. It reminded me why we love baseball so much as a great family experience.
After the break are four reasons to get excited and book a San Diego baseball trip this spring.
