As one of the most beautiful cities in the United States, San Diego certainly enjoys its fair share of visitors. People come far and wide to take in the beautiful views of the Pacific coast as well as experience to unique laid back culture that the city has come to exude. With a deep-rooted passion for sports as well as plenty to do in terms of entertainment, there's no reason not to stop by this southern California enclave.
When it comes to sports in San Diego, one team dominates the scene: the Chargers. Ever since they started playing in the city in 1961, they have been a favorite among nearly all residents of the city. Though they have yet to capture a Super Bowl title, the Bolts, as they are commonly known, have been one of the most consistent teams in the NFL.
The Chargers also have one of the most historic venues in the NFL. Qualcomm Stadium has been the Chargers' home since the mid '60s when it opened as San Diego Stadium. While other new stadiums have sprung up across the league, the Chargers' venue retained its classic charm and remains one of the toughest places for opposing teams to play. Furthermore, it regularly hosts a pair of college football bowl games, the Holiday Bowl and the Poinsettia Bowl.
Though the Chargers are beloved, they are certainly not the only team to call San Diego home. The Padres of the MLB are also stationed in the city, and play their home games at one of the most picturesque stadiums in the league, Petco Park. Opened in 2004, the venue offers a stunning view of downtown San Diego and is a great place to take in a game.
Sports may be a big draw for visitors, but the city has much to offer outside of athletic events. For starters, the San Diego Convention Center hosts numerous events throughout the year and attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors on a regular basis.
There are also a slew of tourist attractions to entertain even the pickiest of vacationers. The San Diego Zoo is one of the best in the world, and there are plenty of delicious places to eat as it would be hard to leave without trying some of the city's delicious Mexican food.
Whether going to San Diego to check out its relaxing coastal views, or simply to take in a baseball game at beautiful Petco Park, the city is truly a gem.
