Our Reflections on the Game
Advice and reflections from the Glanville Team
Thoughts from James
Petco is a really great stadium. It is easy to get to from the Omni Hotel. We just walked in through the sky walk entrance that is hooked to the hotel. And after the game when you are tired you just zip back to your room. The field has a little bit of a feel like Wrigley with brick buildings in the outfield. It also has a park with a big green hill that people can sit on in outfield and look into the game. It is like the modern version of Wrigely. The seats were comfortable and it was easy to get around.James
Petco is a very clean stadium with friendly people assisting guests. It feels like every seat in the stadium is a good one, with views of the city in the back-ground. The stadium is located right next to the Omni Hotel so we enjoyed the ease of walking in through the sky walk both for getting into the game and leaving. That was an extra bonus! All in all Petco was a great stadium experience and since we live in California we can visit this one again and again!Christie
