Cosa farete

Often referred to as the cultural jewel of San Diego, Balboa Park is one of the more popular places for visitors to explore, but many rush from one thing to the next. We're going to slow down and dive deep into the nooks and crannies of the park, discovering architectural details, delightful gardens, and cultural treasures most guests pass by. There's an Instagram-able spot around every corner!

We'll start at the western end of the park and cross Cabrillo Bridge, entering the park as VIPs did at the beginning of the Panama-California Exposition. We'll zigzag our way along the Prado, the heart of the central mesa, taking in the shear beauty of the place. Specifically we'll:
-Learn about the early 20th-century expositions that shaped Balboa Park
-Find the best spots to photograph Balboa Park’s beautiful Spanish colonial revival architecture
- Discover how the park was formed 150 years ago, and how city leaders have used it to promote San Diego ever since
- See where the Navy marched and nudists lounged in the early 20th century
- Explore plant and tree filled gardens and a sculpture courtyard hiding in plain sight
- Enjoy a beverage at a locally owned and operated coffee cart
Other things to note
This is a walking tour - we'll cover less than 2 miles but will be on our feet most of the time. Tour ends 10 minutes away from where it begins.

I’m a native to San Diego and a professional tour guide here since 2002. I've led different types of tours but my favorite - walking tours - led me to own & operate San Diego Urban Adventures from 2017-2021 and launch San Diego Walks in March of 2021.

I'm a passionate local who loves to show off our beautiful city while meeting people from all over the world – that’s you! I know the city in a way guide books don't, and want you to see Balboa Park through my eyes. Have a question about the park, or the city, or recommend our favorite craft beer or taco shop? Join me!

Jenn is a great speaker and definitely showed us a ton of things we would've missed if we had gone alone! She is a great person and was very accommodating on our tour as well. I will definitely book again to bring more of my friends here!

I've been to Balboa Park a number of times before and with this tour, I'm so glad I got to learn so much more about its history and how it first came to be. Jenn was very knowledgeable about several architecture buildings and took us to spots that I never would have found on my own. Great value and recommendations to spend the day there.
