The Spreckels Organ

The Spreckels Organ is the largest open-air music instrument in the world. An American Symphonic organ built by The Austin Organ Company in 1914, it comprises more than 5,000 pipes and 84 ranks of pipes which span the entire building.

Balboa Park

Ever changing. Always amazing.  Where culture, science, and nature collide, Balboa Park is home to more than 16 museums, multiple performing arts venues, lovely gardens, trails, and many other creative and recreational attractions, including the San Diego Zoo. With a variety of cultural institutions among its 1,200 beautiful and lushly planted acres, there is something for everyone.

San Diego

Boasting mild weather that makes it a great place to visit any time of the year, San Diego's beaches, parks and attractions are matched with an easygoing outdoor lifestyle. Balboa Park is in the heart of the city, which is the second-largest in California and the eighth-largest in the USA. It's a major port for the US Navy, a center for biotech and electronic innovation and production, and a year-round travel destination.
