Default baseball parks--which ones have you guys been to?

Great American Ballpark--6.5/10. The Reds are my team, but this stadium is far from perfect. It's architechture is very inconsistent. The designers couldn't decide if they wanted to make a retro, or modern day park

PNC Park--9.5/10--very cozy setting, great views of downtown. Overall, a very pretty park. Escapes the red brick trend of the other new stadiums

Jacobs Field--9.0 10--hard to tell it's 13 years old. Still looks brand new and has held up well, despite the awful weather in Cleveland. Great architecture, awesome views of downtown. Only thing that makes it score lower than PNC is that the upperdeck seats are pretty high, due to the disgusting amount of luxury suites

Wrigley Field--9.5/10--a classic park. Perfect neighborhood location, and is cozy and intimate without trying too hard to be. Lots and lots of history inside these walls.

U.S. Cellular Field--7.5/10an underrated park. Will never compare to Wrigley, but it's modern, clean, and the renovations have really helped it out, though the upperdeck is still incredibly steep

Fenway Park--10/10--best stadium I've been to. The history will overwhelm you, regardless if you like the Red Sox or not. Lots of interesting nooks and crannies, plus the Green Monster. Fans are the most passionate in all of baseball, and the stadium is always full and rocking

Dodger Stadium--9.5/10--was scared for my life walking up that giant hill to get to the stadium. I found out the hard way that you pretty much have to drive to this place. Walking back down to the busstop after the game, I feared for my life *lol* Despite that, a very pretty ballpark with perhaps the 2nd best scenery behind PNC Park. The fact that it's built into a ravine also makes it really unique. Also, the focus here is on baseball. No gimmicks here. The simple beauty of the game is enough

Thoughts? Opinions?

Petco is one of the nicest Parks I have ever been to. It still looks brand new and every seat is towards the field, so not matter where you sit you can see everything very well. I love the park and you should have a great time.

P.S. The park is in downtown so after the game there is a lot of things you can do.

I just recently went to PNC Park, so it will be interesting to see how the two new parks compare, because in my mind, PNC Park is the ultimate jewel in all of baseball.

The one in Pittsburgh? That one I heard is pretty sick, but IMO I think you might like Petco better. PM me or something and tell me which one do you think is the best of the two.

Dodger Stadium would be better if there was a better way you could get there w/o driving. Last time I was there, this bus dropped me off at the bottom of this giant hill. Upon reaching the top, the stadium is in the middle of a huge parking lot After the game, I felt a little bit nervous navigating this giant parking lot with all these cars driving by and going back down the hill.

I've been to Shea at least 20 times, and I don't ever intend to visit another ballpark unless I move to some other state.
