San Diego’s Balboa Park

If you are in San Diego Balboa Park is one of the must see sights. The Park includes a Performing Arts Center, numerous museums, and the Botanical Gardens all housed in architecturally interesting buildings and surrounded by easily walkable sidewalks and nice landscaping.

The most important thing is to know where you want to go and how to get there as this place is LARGE. You can pick up a map at their visitor’s centre or check their website http://www.balboapark.org/.

We were on a budget so we spent most of our time walking around enjoying the free destinations and the nice day. One of our favourite things was the Botanical Gardens. While they weren’t the huge impressive gardens of Singapore they were easy to get around. They had some beautiful orchids and a ‘Touch and Smell’ garden with really interesting smelling herbs including standards like lemon verbena, but also unique things like chocolate mint.

If you are in San Diego it is definitely worth spending a day here enjoying the Park.

Love, Lee
