The place is unbelievable in size and scope. Could spend a least a day, maybe more and not see, or take advantage of all the things to see and/or do

Architecture, history, culture, horticulture, street jugglers aerospace, fortune tellers, Shakespeare, fountains, a beautiful restaurant--all and more is happening inside the lush landscaping of Balboa Park. Quite the jewel.

Awesome! Great exhibits. Reasonably priced.
Easy to get there by bus from Old Town. Didn't have time to do many other museums and had already been to the zoo

Balboa Park is one of those beautiful places that many cities have, but this beautiful place is unique to San Diego. This huge expanse of park has museums, playgrounds, bike trails, a dog park, a zoo, a wonderful restaurant, a huge area for concerts, etc. For visitors, it is a place you could spend a day or days, and native San Diegans take full advantage of these great surroundings too. A must place to visit!!
