The large and pleasant Balboa Park is located in the heart of the city. The park gives home to the famous san Diego Zoo and not less than 13 museums.

Not all of the museums are very good, but the Museum of Man and the Natural History Museum were very cool. The Zoo is also fantastic. :)

You can visit the institiutions but I won one great afteroon also only taking a huge walk and a small picknick in the park. People were very nice and friendly as well.

Address:
1549 El Prado, San Diego

Price:
Admission into the park and gardens is free and so is to some of the attractions.

Opening Hours:
The park itself is open 24/7.
