I’ve spent the last 10 days in beautiful San Diego, California. A great city that really does offer something for everyone. You can be drinking coffee at the beach at 10:00 AM and 2 hours later (or less) be in the mountains of the Cleveland National Forest at 7,500 ft elevation having lunch. There are great museums, parks, shopping, restaurants and live entertainment located relatively close together in San Diego. Unlike LA, the San Diego freeways are very manageable and pretty easy to navigate.
Visitors to San Diego should not miss a visit to Balboa Park, home to the San Diego Zoo and half a dozen museums and wonderful gardens. Just park your car in the free lots located in the park, grab your camera and walk for a few hours through the well manicured gardens and museums.

Balboa Park was the result of civic foresight dating back to 1868, thanks to some generous individuals!

A day in Balboa Park will never disappoint!
