- A Karen Brown Recommendation
Balboa Park is without a doubt one of the highlights of downtown San Diego. Attractions within the park include the San Diego Zoo, one of the finest in the world. But Balboa Park offers much more than its splendid zoo. There are fascinating museums and exhibits within the 1,400-acre park: the San Diego Museum of Man, the San Diego Air & Space Museum, the San Diego Museum of Art, the Timken Museum of Art, the Natural History Museum, Reuben H. Fleet Science Center, the Hall of Champions, the Museum of Photographic Arts, and the beautiful wooden Botanical Building. Most of the museums are housed in picturesque Spanish-style buildings.
