Home to the San Francisco Giants major league baseball team (winners of the 2010, 2012, and 2014 World Series Championships), AT&T Park is known for its waterfront setting on San Francisco Bay. This ballpark also features better-than-average stadium food, from Dungeness crab tacos to Hawaiian-style poke to Ghirardelli chocolate sundaes.
Located in the South Beach neighborhood of San Francisco, AT&T Park is set apart from most of San Francisco’s tourist attractions. To visit, attend a baseball game or take a behind-the-scenes tour. Alternate views can be enjoyed from a seaplane or helicopter tour, or on a bay cruise. Visitors with access to a boat or kayak can even drift around McCovey Cove and wait for homerun balls (“splash hits”) that drop into the water.
Things to Know Before You Go
- Bring a jacket, beanie, and other warm layers; summer night game in San Francisco are usually cold, especially if you sit in the “view level.”
- A Guest Services Station is located behind home plate on the Promenade Level, where you can ask about wheelchairs, public transport, assistive listening devices, and more.
- Accessible seating is available throughout the stadium.
- Elevators are located at each of the four entrances to the ballpark.
- There are four main entrances: Willie Mays Gate at 3rd and King streets, Lefty O'Doul Gate at 3rd and Berry, Marina Gate behind center field, and the 2nd and King Street Gate.
How to Get There
AT&T Park sits at the southern end of the Embarcadero, bounded by King Street, 2nd Street, 3rd Street, and San Francisco Bay. N and T light-rail lines stop at the King and Second station, and a Caltrain station is one block away. Or, take the 10, 30, or 45 city bus. Paid parking lots are just south of the stadium but this is a congested urban area and public transport is recommended.
When to Get There
The Major League Baseball season runs from roughly early April to early October, followed by the postseason, which extends through the month of October. If you can’t make it to a game or aren’t interested in baseball, you can still visit the venue at one of the other events held throughout the year, such as concerts, festivals, and Cirque du Soleil shows.
21st Amendment Brewery
Pre-gaming is one of the best parts of going to any sporting event, and 21st Amendment Brewery is a popular spot to enjoy beer and pub-style food before a Giants game. Located on 2nd Street just two blocks from the ballpark, 21st Amendment produces local favorites like Hell or High Watermelon wheat beer, Brew Free! or Die IPA, and El Sully Mexican-style lager.
