During the season, you can enjoy Major League Baseball action at PETCO Park when the San Diego Padres are playing at home. But even in the off-season, you can go on a behind-the-scenes tour of the stadium that includes a visit to the press box, a chance to sit in the dugout and a look inside the visiting team’s clubhouse.
Honored as one of the country’s finest urban parks, Balboa Park offers visitors 1,200 beautifully planted acres and 16 museums to explore plus a variety of performing arts venues and restaurants. From the Old Globe Theatre, modeled after Shakespeare’s original venue in London, to the Scripps Aviary exhibit, a visit to Balboa Park is a very special experience.
San Diego Zoo
Located within the perimeter of Balboa Park, the world-famous San Diego Zoo is a must-see when you are in the area. Inside its lush confines, you will find animals and birds of all kinds, including many endangered species. Love koala bears? The zoo has the largest koala colony outside Australia. How about tigers? The Tiger Trail exhibit features tigers, tapirs, storks and other birds and animals in a simulated Asian rain forest, an exotic jungle-like environment especially favored by the big cats. Whether you want to pet an armadillo or clock the deliberate progress of a two-toed sloth, the San Diego Zoo offers shows, animal encounters and much more for an unforgettable visit.
If you are spending some time in downtown San Diego, consider taking the one-hour Harbor Cruise on San Diego Bay. For your convenience, there are seven different departure times from the dock on North Harbor Drive. You will see the city skyline from a whole different perspective and sail past U.S. Navy vessels, the iron-hulled sailing ship Star of India and other waterside attractions.
