Seat view from section E at Petco Park, home of the San Diego Padres

Section E had an outstanding view of the field though I would have liked to have sat a little closer. Any closer and you would be sitting in the 'Lexus Club'.
15 rows in section E. We were in row 14 which is underneath the overhang. Petco is very accessible, we like to park at Qualcomm Stadium (where the Chargers play) and take the trolley to Petco. It eliminates the headache of having to find parking for your car downtown, even though parking in downtown San Diego is much easier than other major California cities.
ALL seats have cup holders which is great, except for the bleacher seats in center field. My favorite feature of the park is the Western Metal Supply Building in left field. The Orioles have an old factory in their ballpark and the Padres have something similar. You can even sit on top of the rooftop of the Metal Supply building but how you go about getting those seats, I have no idea?

The crowd is extremely laid back and relaxed and often very friendly to visiting fans. Dodger and Giants fans always storm into Petco when those teams are in town and like to give Padres fans a hard time. Dodgers fans are often the filth of MLB fans - just look the the Bryan Stow incident.
