  • San Diego Botanical gardens is a huge park-like area full of trails, views, and of course all sorts of interesting and beautiful foliage from huge trees to tiny succulents. I enjoyed especially how well the various geographic zones were designed. For example, there is a New Zealand zone, African plant zone, native plant area, and many more. There is also a super fun play and explore area for kids and the young at heart. The gardens also offers organized activities for kids. Last but not least, everyone who works and volunteers at the gardens is friendly and quick to help and share knowledge.
  • Hands down one of the most beautiful places in the area, and that's saying something. Well worth the price; there is so much to see and do here. You get to experience different ecosystems from all over the world in one place! Also, the kids area is AMAZING. I 100% recommend that anyone interested check it out. Word of advice: this place is huge so you will want to make sure to give yourself ample time to enjoy the garden, bring walking shoes, and snacks and water.
