This park is huge! It’s like an open to public, open area theme park. There’s only carousel and railroad for kids, but there’s plenty of attractions for all ages. Get there, and it guarantees something that will fit to your liking. Surrounded by all the attractions are several gardens along the way to wherever you choose to go to. You can even see different international houses. There’s a whooping 15 informational, entertaining, diverse and cultural museums. Check out San Diego happenings, events and theater plays, and you might end up seeing it in The Old Globe or Balboa Stadium. If not, the Spreckels Organ Pavilion has musical spectacle for everyone to hear. If all of these is not good enough, Balboa Park houses the ever-popular San Diego Zoo. There’s also bike and hiking trails for the outdoorsy types.
I bring you Balboa Park’s Botanical Garden …
Actually, there are plenty of free admission days in California museums and gardens. I googled this site to help you score free entrances - www.californiafreebies.com.
You can just walk in the botanical garden in Balboa Park whenever it’s open.
Check more flowers here – LA Arboretum.
Variety, diversity, all kinds of interests and fun for family, and the best part of it all … actually, there’s no best in particular. It’s the fact that there’s this one general area in San Diego that centralizes all these awesome attractions. The entire Balboa Park is the newest addition to my absolute MUST list.
Check out this date’s newly Freshly Pressed blog entry. I got so excited having to see a ‘Blog I Follow’ to be in that list, esp. with the recent award I received from them. B&W Bears’ clear, sharp and close-up images deserve all the recognition it gets.
I know, I know. I need to work on taking pictures of birds in flight. If you’re ever in any garden building, don’t just keep your eyes peeled on plants and flowers, keep your ears open as well.
