The Best Baseball Stadium Ever...PetCo Park

The first time that Christian and I went to San Diego, I fell in love with PetCo Park. We walked all over, and I fell in love with the city. But it was as we drove by that I fell in love with the park. It's in the middle of downtown San Diego, and the views inside the stadium are absolutely stunning. Since Christians sister and brother-in-law live near San Diego, we always had a reason to go and visit. 

The park opened in 2004 and is the current home to the Padres. Now, I don't know a ton about baseball, but my favorite team is the Padres. Partially because the stadium is beautiful, partially because their colors are blue, and lastly because Christian's favorite team is the angles and I had to choose a different team. He said that I couldn't be a Dodgers fan, and the A's and the Giants were too far away. So, the Padres it is! 

One of my favorite things about the park is that, even if the tickets are sold out (or the tickets are crazy expensive) is that you can still get in. Instead of buying a ticket to the game, you can get access to this little grassy park area right next to the stadium. Even if you buy a ticket to the game, you can still have access to the area. 

Before I left, Christian had promised to take me to a Padres game. I had been wanting to go to a Padres game since I first saw the stadium and the second Friday before I left, he made it happen. A ton of stuff had been going on, and I was working crazy hours, but we made it happen. He drove the four hours (because hey, traffic), and we made it in time to see the second inning. We walked around, and he showed me the sights. It was bittersweet because it was our last game at a stadium while I was in town. It was a good game, and something I'm glad that I was able to experience while I was still there. I can't wait to go to more when I go back to visit.
