When: Through October 2023
Named America's best MLB ballpark by USA Today, Petco Park has it all: A stunning location by San Diego Bay, close proximity to the great dining and bustling nightlife of the Gaslamp Quarter, and a host of excellent in-park amenities and seating options. And, of course, it has the Padres, San Diego's beloved MLB team since 1969. Cheer on the "Pads" (the National League Divison Series champs in 2022), sample some of Petco Park's great bites and beverages and take in the skyline views and fantastic baseball atmosphere. Families will also love the grassy expanses of the park's Gallagher Square — and anytime there's a Sunday home game, the square hosts KidsFest, which starts two hours before game time and includes bounce houses, interactive games, face painters, balloon artists and more.
When: Through Sept. 30, 2023
