Things to see in San Diego

Make the most of the warm weather and head to Balboa Park. Pick up a picnic from a local deli and eat it at your leisure in the manicured gardens before heading to some of the attractions within the park. Art lovers will enjoy the regular demonstrations at the Spanish Village Art Center in the center of the park. The center is made up of various studios and galleries, showcasing local painters, metalsmiths, photographers, and glass artists. Nearby, you’ll find a Japanese Friendship Garden, complete with a traditional koi carp pond, ceremonial gate, and bonsai exhibition. Join a walking tour to get the most out of this beautiful space. Another of Balboa Park’s unmissable attractions is its charming carousel. Dating back to 1910, this colorful ride still enchants both kids and grown-ups with its tinkling melodies and cute horses. Elsewhere in San Diego, the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier is open to the public as a museum.
