Baseball trip to San Diego like stealing home games

The Gaslamp District in downtown San Diego, is seen in this July 11, 2001 file photo. Home to the San Diego Padres, nearby Petco Park has replaced the sail-shaped convention center as downtown's crown jewel and helped rejuvenate an area long diminished by urban blight. Mix in a lively Gaslamp District nightlife scene, an abundance of shopping and tourist attractions such as museum-rich Balboa Park, and downtown is a must-see destination.
