I've professed my love for Balboa Park a number of times before. We find ourselves down there at least once a week.. Balboa Park is home to restaurants, the San Diego Zoo, a botanical garden, outdoor theater, and tons of museums. It is definitely one of San Diegos best spots.
Last week I told Bennett we could go to the train museum, which happens to be one of his favorites, only to find it closed when we got there. We walked around and enjoyed a picnic lunch. But then on a whim, we decided to check out The Nat. It was our first time visiting, and I am so glad we went. We had a wonderful time and will certainly be back. In fact, Balboa Park is celebrating its Centennial this year and is offering a special membership to all the museums for one flat rate. We are absolutely signing up and adding it to our list of San Diego memberships.
