I absolutely love Balboa Park. I couldn't say enough good things about it. There is something for everyone. Lots of muesums, the zoo, cultural exhibits, festivals, the organ pavilion, fantastic running trails, the international cottages, and so much more. Be sure to check out their website during the summer months because there is always something fun and free going on at the park.

Balboa Park is a whole different world, with tons of experiences and exhibitions, or just for exploring. Fabulous dog park if you have a furry friend, and a wonderful way to spend the day.
