If you are a baseball fan, we do not need to introduce you to the Petco Park in San Diego. However, if you are not, here is something you need to know. Inaugurated by the San Diego Padres on 9th
April 2004, Petco Park is the best ballpark in Downtown San Diego. It has lip-smacking food, the best sight-lines, and generally great weather for watching the games. Enjoying the Padres game at Petco Park is no less than an adventure. You can feel the adrenaline rush well before the first inning, and the excitement lasts long after the game is over. We at Buy, Sell, rent San Diego have curated a perfect guide for you to enjoy the game at its best.
Petco Park Seating
Petco Park offers a broad range of seats for you to choose from. Below are a few guidelines to help you decide the best one for you:
Best view: The Western Metal Building, Field Box, Dugout Club, and Premier Club sections provide some of the best views. Make sure you get the lower row number to feel the action closely.
Birdseye view: The roof-top seating area helps you enjoy a good view of the game and San Diego city. It also helps you save those extra bucks!
Sunny view: The right field sections get sunny. Therefore, be prepared to enjoy the game with light, breezy clothes.
Shady view: The left field sections offers shade. However, the scoreboard is right above it. Checking out the score can be a bit of a pain (in the heck).
Relaxing view: Toyota terrace provides the most beautiful and relaxed view, provided you are ready to shell out the money from your pockets.

The price of the tickets varies on the days and season. If you are lucky enough, you could grab a ticket for $5. If you select the best view during the baseball season, you may have to shell out $70.
