San Diego sports teams are fun to watch during a visit or even if you live here. Whether you want to see a major league baseball game or minor league women’s soccer you can find it here in San Diego.
If you want to avoid parking trouble and traffic the trolley will take you to both Petco Park and Qualcomm. It is an excellent choice and a lot cheaper than paying for parking.
Petco Park in downtown San Diego is home to the Padres baseball league. You can either get regular seats in the stadium or you can watch the game from the park at the park. The park is great if you have little kids that want to run around as there is a playground and grass for them, plus the tickets are a lot more affordable. You can find more information by going to the Padres official website.
You can also watch the game from the Altitude Bar at the top of the Marriott on K St. You will need to get there EARLY because it is a small bar and reaches capacity fast. Don’t forget to bring binoculars!
Qualcomm Stadium in Mission Valley is where the Chargers play. There is a large parking lot around the stadium where people tailgate. I would still recommend the trolley, especially if you are drinking. Just hop on the trolley after the game and head downtown for more fun!
Qualcomm is kind of in the middle of everything and nothing. It isn’t like Petco, which is surrounded by restaurants and things to do. There are a few restaurants nearby, like an Islands and smaller strip mall places.
You can also watch the game from one of the many bars anywhere in San Diego, which is fun, too. Check the website for schedules, tickets, and more…
The San Diego Sports Arena in the Point Loma area is home to some of the minor league teams and also other shows that come to town (like Disney on Ice). There is plenty of parking but the trolley doesn’t go there. There are also a few restaurants around, like Olive Garden and Red Lobster.
