Long a central gathering place for San Diegans and tourists alike, Balboa Park was a fitting host for the BAMily’s July outing.
Larger in size than New York’s Central Park and with numerous, varied attractions and museums from the San Diego ZOO to the San Diego Natural History Museum to Palm Canyon to the Museum of Photographic Arts, Balboa Park has more-than earned it’s moniker, “Smithsonian of the West.”
After enjoying a sunny al fresco lunch at The Prado, the BAMily broke into small groups and set out in different directions to soak-in the many cultural charms offered by Balboa Park.
Whether you’re new to San Diego, visiting for the first time or a life-long denizen of America’s Finest City, Balboa Park has an embarrassment of riches to explore. And, thanks to ever-changing exhibitions and a varied landscape with captivating flora and fauna, you’ll always see something new!
