Balboa Park has something for everyone. This was a favorite family destination when our kids were young. The IMAX Theatre and the Science Center provides hours of entertainment for kids and adults. Want to be outside? Stroll through the peaceful gardens and enjoy the fresh air!

Buy the multi museum pass to see one of 17 sites; enjoy the free Arboretum and Timken Museum as well as the Rose and Cactus Gardens.

Balboa Park is a favorite of mine.Always lots of things to do from festivals, museums, restaurants, countries represented thru their cultural houses to restaurants. A definite plus when visiting San Diego.....and right next-door to the zoo.

This park has awesome museums and the Prado restaurant is a great place to end the day of touring! There is complimentary self parking but the Prado does offer valet if you're just wanting to dine in Balboa Park

The historic architecture and plantings make this one of the most beautiful city parks in the USA.
Culturally there are great museums, theaters and outdoor sculptures all located within easy walking distance. The park is a visual delight.
