Balboa Park is one of the main tourist and local attractions for San Diego, primarily for the San Diego Zoo, but also for the many beautiful gardens and 15-20 museums and theatres. We spent one day at the park to see the gardens and Natural History Museum, but we could easily have gone back every day for a week.
