Balboa Park… A True San Diego Gem!

Balboa Park is a true San Diego Gem.  A unique “Urban Green Space” like no other, anywhere in the United States.  The Park hosts a world-class Zoo,  dozens of museums like the Natural History, Art, Photographic, Air and Space and Automobile to name a few.  There is  even an IMax Theater, a Science Center, the Old Globe Theater, Restaurants, a green space with miles of walking paths and a dog-park.  Balboa Park should be on every San Diego visitor’s agenda.  You can easily spend a full day at just a few of the many attractions!  If your visit to San Diego if for only a few days, make sure you spend one of those days at Balboa Park.  If a visit to San Diego is not in your future, please enjoy a few photographs I took during a recent morning stroll through the Park!
