San Francisco's AT&T Park is one of the true gems of the entire Bay Area.
Snuggled against the San Francisco Bay, it is not only home to the reigning World Champions, it is often listed among the top baseball parks in the country.
That proved true again this week when TripAdvisor listed its top picks. They surveyed travelers around the world who voted San Francisco is No. 2.
TripAdvisor listed the ballpark's winning as assets such as the views of the bay, the ability to catch a home run ball in McCovey Cove, the park replica in the outfield for kids.
"Nothing says Americana like a day out at the old ball game, and the TripAdvisor community has identified these popular stadiums as the finest," said TripAdvisor's Brooke Ferencsik. "From the architecture of the buildings, to the stunning views of the surroundings, to the local culinary delights, these parks provide travelers with baseball-rich experiences that will last a lifetime."
The number one park, according to the survey is in Pittsburgh. The list is a mix of old and new and Giants' fans will like to note that Dodger Stadium is nowhere to be found.
Here's what they had to say about PNC:
Perched along the Allegheny River, this renowned ballpark features spectacular sights of the Steel City skyline and the beautiful Clemente Bridge. A unique two-level ballpark that opened in 2001, PNC provides an intimate setting and spectacular views and sight lines from anywhere in the stadium. A TripAdvisor traveler commented, "The views of the city from the ballpark are beautiful; great food and beer selections."
