Visit Petco Park
Yes, the main reason many head to Petco Park is to catch a Padres game, BUT there is much more than baseball at our downtown stadium. Several of San Diego’s tastiest restaurants and food vendors call Petco Park home, such as Cardiff Seaside Market, Phil’s BBQ, Ballast Point Brewery, and more!
Try Some of the Nation’s Best Craft Beer
By now, everyone knows San Diego is one of the best and most exciting beer cities in the country. While the beer scene is no longer solely ours, the explosion of breweries in town has resulted in a ton of beer festivals and tastings seemingly every weekend in San Diego. With the weather heating up, be sure to be on the lookout for weekend beer festivals or even just do a local tasting at one of our several local breweries, such as Ballast Point or Stone Brewery.
Spring marks the beginning of the busiest home-selling and home-buying season in San Diego. With the warmer weather, more daylight, and the motivation to get settled in a new home before the next school year begins, buyers are more likely to shop during this time of year, with home buying peaking in June.
