Balboa Park : San Diego

Much to see and do in San Diego’s Balboa Park. It has an amazing array of top notch museums, a large zoo as well as gardens and restaurants, and depending on your preference you can either spend a few hours wondering around or a few days visiting all the museums and gardens. I skipped most of the museums, and just ventures into the gardens – the desert garden and the botanical gardens (both free) and there’s also some Japanese gardens with a strong contrast to the desert scenery.

Some parts of the park feel a bit like a touristic version of Mexico…
