Balboa Park

Address: 1549 El Prado, San Diego, CA 92101

Balboa park is more than 1000 acres in the heart of San Diego. Within it is more than 16 museums and over 16 separate gardens. It also houses the world-famous San Diego Zoo, carousel, cultural park, stadium, and amphitheaters. There’s an active working replica of Shakespeare’s Old Globe Theater. Balboa park is also very old… 1835 old to be exact.
