Nice little garden close to the fountain! There is a sign that says to be careful for butterfly cocoons, but I've never been lucky enough to find one. Peaceful setting!

    The Science Center was a big part of my childhood and how I began my love with Balboa Park. Luckily in elementary school I was taken on field trips here on many occasions and even with my family when they'd come into town. There is a wonderful exploration and learning area that is so interesting and full of hands-on activities. ...

    A really fantastic museum, hard to believe (yet lucky!) we have so many in our own (San Diego's) backyard. Located just north of downtown, visit this gem of a museum that regularly features major exhibitions from around the world, as well as an extensive year-round schedule of supporting cultural and educational programs for children and adults. Very cool that the ...

    This is a really great attraction located in the southwest corner or Balboa Park near the Hall of Champions museum. I have seen numerous plays in the outdoor theater as a kid and have very fond memories. Expose your children to some theater or head out for a ladies night out or date night!

    Beautiful outdoor amphitheater in the center of San Diego's prized Balboa Park. Often times performances and music is played, especially during the holiday season. It's a very common spot for photography, mainly engagement photos. Built for a Worlds Fair way back when and in prestige shape! Plenty of seating and a lot to do nearby! Parking lots located just behind ...

    I believe this is the same exhibition that was on display in Vegas; like the Dead Sea Scrolls, it travels to host cities. I was disappointed I didn't get to see this in Vegas when it was there, so I was excited when it came to my hometown. The Titanic Artifact Exhibition is a wonderful homage to the disastrous tragedy ...

    This is another museum in Balboa Park. And happily, the admission is free. It is not large. The collection is shown in five rooms but includes a Rembrandt and some good American artists.

    A garden is always in a state of change but the basic elements of trees, shrubs, rocks and water designed in natural balance create a peaceful, harmonious, and transcendental environment conducive to contemplation and meditation.

    This museum is totally awesome. They've dedicated a huge amount of space, time and effort into building an enormous display of Model railroads. Definitely great for kids and model train geeks.
