Fodor's Review

Opened in 2004, PETCO Park is a state-of-the-art major league ballpark and home to the San Diego Padres. Built at a cost of $450 million, the stadium features a 30- x 53-foot LED video board and more than 1,000 televisions, and is strategically designed to give fans a view of San Diego Bay, the skyline, and Balboa Park. Reflecting San Diego's beauty, the stadium is clad in sandstone from India to evoke the area's cliffs and beaches; the 42,000 seats are dark blue, reminiscent of the ocean, and the exposed steel is painted white to reflect the sails of harbor boats on the bay. The family-friendly lawnlike berm, "Park at the Park," is a popular and affordable place for fans to view the game. Behind-the-scenes guided tours of PETCO, including the press box and the dugout, are offered throughout the year.
