    Get a Randy Jones BBQ sliced brisket sandwich (w/ extra sauce) in center field. Go to the Hall Of Fame Bar in left (if it's a blowout) & the Ballpark Brews stand on the first base side for good beer.

    Love their healthy selections. Paradise Bowls serves fresh fruits granola with acai juice. Seafood selection of clam chowder and shrimp avocado salad? FRESH! Other ballparks need to take note!

    Beautiful park with a great location. Omni hotel is a 30 step walk. Gas Lamp a block away and convention center with plenty of parking 2 blocks. Enjoy the game and downtown.

    The views were good, they had awesome people there and great fans who loved my service animal. The down fall was they were exactly accommodating to people with ADA and their service animals.

    Pretty pricey but a beautiful stadium right in the downtown area. Check out the model of the Navy aircraft carrier on the third base line!

    Incorporating the Western Metal Building in the ballpark is awesome. A really good beer selection, in a wonderful part of town. Day or Night game, the weather is going to be comfortable.

    I love traveling to away games with my Giants & had to knock Petco Park off the list. It is a beautiful stadium in a beautiful city, walking distance from a great night life & the beauty of the ocean.

    Depending on time of day, easily fast park, buy tickets right on Park, Tony Gwynn Dr. Lots of temp parking to buy tixx. Avoid surcharges if it makes sense & cents for you Padres faithful. LA fans pay!

    There is a sand play area for kids in center field near the bleachers. Gaslamp District near stadium is fun. If you need help deciding which Seats to purchase for your next Padres game, check out Read more

    This is my favorite ball park thus far. Great architecture blending old and new, and has such an intimate feeling nestled between downtown buildings. City view at night from upper deck is stunning.

    PETCO Park is a beautiful ballpark, and a great place to watch a baseball game. Park Pass tickets are great when you have young kids with limited attention spans. Check out our link for more info. Read more

    Among my top five ballparks in the country along with AT&T Park, PNC Park, the new Yankee Stadium and Orioles Park at Camden Yards, the original.

    Lots of local craft brew options throughout the ballpark, but there are stands specifically dedicated to the local breweries near home plate. Don't miss them!

    Get there early if it's your first game and wander around and take it in. Beautifully done and so much fun. And the views are awesome.

    Away games are aired on the big screen there, so it's a good way to watch the game and relax. You can bring your dog (ANY dog) on a leash with you, too!

    Section 305, Row 3 gets you really close to the action at a relatively small price. Head around to section 319 or so to get food; it won't be nearly as crowded and you can grab a fish taco.

    In the city. Very cool stadium almost spills out onto the main road. A bit like Lords Cricket Ground in London in that you dont really feel like you are in a stadium.

    Great atmosphere in the heart of the Gaslamp district. Can't miss if the Padres are in town!

    Be very careful where you park on game days. They tow from just about every street in the area. Best to park in a garage when there's a game

    Buy your ticket off Stubhub for a much cheaper price! Also don't forget to get some garlic french fries because they are the bomb!

    Western Metal Supply Co. is legit- grab a quick bite and beer there before or during game- they have tons of TVs as well.

    The pizza below section 305 was the best ballpark pizza I've ever had. It probably helped that I also had about four bud lights!

    Great ballpark right in the middle of the city. Grab a drink at one of the bars on 6th and 7th ave before heading to the game.

    Go Padres! When the Padres play at Petco, stop by Myxologie Juice Bar (up the street at 445 10th Avenue) and get a Frozen Yogurt or Gelato Cone for $1.00!

    If you purchase an eTicket, the park can't scan them. You are forced to wait in line at the box office 4 a printed one. #PITA

    The ticket kiosk was really fast. You can drink drafts or out of one pint cans. They have a "Hebrew" kosher dog which was a first. Employees kept reminding that they accept tips kind of annoying

    Go to the hall of fame bar on the top floor of metal (brick building on left field) and watch the game from there if you got tickets in the nose bleeds... Can choose between 1-3 inning or 4-end of gam

    I had the honor of throwing out the first pitch at this very stadium. As soon as I left the mound I was offered a 7-year contract. Unfortunately, I was not able fulfill due to a prior engagement.
