Hands down, my favorite place to be in San Diego is Balboa Park. When I had a day to myself I would often drive there and spend the day visiting the museums, watching a free concert, grabbing a sandwich and making a picnic on the lawn near the bocce court. If you haven’t been there, then you haven’t experienced San Diego’s true gem. On a recent weekend trip back I took Nick to the Museum of Man, the Timken Museum, and of course the Botanical Gardens. Here’s a bit of that gorgeous sunny day!

We had a ton of fun that trip, checking out new sites and even having a front row seat to the fireworks unexpectedly! One place I always need to see when I am there is Balboa Park and if you are lucky enough to be there during Winter, you have to check out December Nights in Balboa Park!
