Visiting sunny San Diego? Local Californian? Whether your a local or a visitor there are tons of ‘must do’s’ to take advantage of in this beautiful city. From hopping over the border for a day trip to Tijuana (famously known as TJ) to roaming the exciting neighbourhoods like Little Italy, Liberty Square and Old Town. During my most recent visit to my second home I was able to go on a ton of adventures as I acted like a Tour Guide, and some of them were absolute musts that I had to share.
Adventure #1 – Padres Game at Petco Park
Take me out to the ball game! No, really, please do! Nothing like taking in the life of the locals like joining them at a San Diego Padres baseball game! This is an absolute must while visiting this exciting city. You’ll get to experience hours of fun and excitement from the food and drinks, to the riveting ball game to the exciting energetic atmosphere.
Petco Park is my favourite baseball field and is known as ‘The Worlds Best Ballpark in America’s Finest City’. It boasts over 40,000 seats and is a host to the Padres since opening in 2004. With colouring that depicts the cliffs, beaches, oceans and white sails of San Diego. It has a stunning view of the San Diego skyline and bay. I love the Western Metal Supply Co. it was actually scheduled to be demolished to make room for the park but they incorporated it into the park which is amazing, and looks great! Your lucky if your there for a home run as you’ll hear the ships whistle and see some fireworks! So exciting!
There are tons of area to check out like the Western Metal Rooftop, Picnic Terraces, Pacific Porch, Premier Club Patio, The Landing, Skyline Patio, Budweiser Patio, Left Field Deck, Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Deck and Terrace Lofts, Tower Loft, Toyota Terrace, On Deck, Foul Pole, Garden Level, and Premier Club Suites.
They have over 40 spots to grab food including their Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill, Ballast Point Bar, Cutwater Spirits Rum Bar, Lucha Libre, and more. Grab anything from Pulled BBQ Pork Fries, Oysters Rockefeller, Slugger Dog and even PB&J Nachos. Not to mention they have 86 beers from 30 different breweries! That’s perfect for us Craft Beer lovers.
