San Diego Imagine going to a prime-time major-league baseball game without being stuck in traffic or worrying about parking or standing in line (except at the hot-dog stand). You don't even have to climb out of the swimming pool and towel off until just before game time. That's the beauty of the San Diego baseball getaway, an ideal SoCal escape in spring or summer. The main attraction is Petco Park, San Diego's new open-air stadium that straddles downtown's newly revitalized Gaslamp Quarter and East Village.
