Tips from locals
Balboa Park has so much to offer, beautiful scenery, museums, ethnically diverse, historically rich, culturally abundant! Get lost in time exploring!
This place is as majestic as it gets. Enjoy breath taking views and lunches on the blanket.
right off of downtown. It’s hard to believe, but our very own Balboa Park is actually bigger than the more famous Central Park in New York City. Even more surprising is Balboa Park is nearly double the acreage. Central park only has 842 acres. home to many gorgeous museums
Always a fun and memorable! The BEST scenery for photographers and to take family photos. Don't forget to go across the street to walk on the trail, smell the flowers and see unique plants and trees!
We love walking around historic Balboa Park. The San Diego Zoo is located there as well as many museums. It’s also just a great place to walk around, picnic, and enjoy San Diego weather. Grab beer or wine at Panama 66 and sit at their outdoor tables.
beautiful architecture. nice place to stroll and sight see. lots of museums. make sure to visit food truck Friday at Balboa Park.
Fantastic Park in San Diego! Lots of museums to explore. You can dine at El Prado overlooking the gardens or picnic in the park!
Beautiful historic buildings, museums and the Zoo is right next door. There are also trails you can hike.
Of course, Balboa Park has to make our list. You could take a whole day walking around this stunning spot, and still not have seen it all. Check out Panama 66, a restaurant and bar in the park for yummy food and a beautiful ambiance. Or, stop by any of the wonderful museums!
Visit in San Diego should include visit to this park. Japanese garden , rose garden . Museums , park & nearby San Diego zoo must see.
