Balboa Park is a stunning, visually beautiful, and historic park in San Diego that is home to a large variety of fascinating educational sites.
The park has sixteen museums, including the San Diego Art Institute, the Fleet Science Center, the San Diego Museum of Art, and the San Diego Natural History Museum.
The many museums represent a cross-section of science and human history. Many of the buildings themselves are architectural masterpieces, set on broad, palm-lined streets. Garden lovers will love the Japanese Friendship Garden.
The park is located near the world-famous San Diego Zoo, so it is worth combining a visit to both tourist destinations.Places nearby:
