We visited Balboa Park on our last day, and I'm so pleased that we did. It was definitely a highlight of our time in the lovely San Diego.
There are several museums to visit, some free and some with admission fees but as we were on a budget we decided to just take in the beauty and walk around snapping away with the camera.
The park is absolutely beautiful, and so easy to get to on public transport. (We just jumped on a bus from downtown and it took around 10 minutes!)
The atmosphere is brilliant, it's obviously a tourist hotspot but its not over crowded and it seems like a lot of the locals like this place too!
The greenery is beautiful and so are the museum buildings. The architecture is amazing and I found that I could stay there all day taking photos and looking around,
Plenty of vendors around too if you get hungry or the kids want an ice cream!
Definitely worth the visit.More
