SD Tourist Spots - Another Look



Description:

Check out the iconic Balboa Park, the area's new 'it' renaissance city of Northpark and the chic, affluent city of La Jolla. Everything from these areas screams "tourist" to many travelers, but because the beauty of these destinations even natives love to enjoy them. Keep your wallet heavy while still enjoying the most iconic features of the city - from the area's best kept secrets - like the infamous vegetarian Mexican restaurant Pokez - to the staples of the area, like Balboa Park.

Day 1 - San Diego


Though the Balboa Park remains San Diego's biggest tourist destination, enjoy the area without looking like a tourist. While it is home to the San Diego Zoo, be sure to take in Balboa Park's rolling hills that are filled with museums, the Spreckels Organ Pavilion and the Globe Theater. If you want to save money, enjoy the simplicity of its luscious gardens, breathtaking architecture and people watch your way through a picnic in the park. Lawn areas are often filled with small parties, wedding receptions and more, making for a scrumptious and educational meal. Another pointer: if you make it on a Tuesday, take advantage of the free, rotating museum schedule.
