One of the huge railroad layouts in the Railroad Museum in Balboa Park. This museum is an act of love. Many of the layouts are exact replicas of railroads of eras past, including replicas of the towns, mines, railroad trestles, parts of San Diego's railroads and ports. Future replicas are laid out in design and photos to show what is being built.
The Botanical Gardens inside of Balboa Park. The most beautiful orchids are in this garden. It smells wonderful and the trickle of small waterfalls throughout this building make it a wonderful place to walk.
The Botanical Garden building. A wonderful place to spend several hours.
This building is a replica of a theatrical hall in Europe. Unfortunately, I don't know anything about it except that it's beautiful.
One of the many waterfalls in the park.
A few miles away is an indoor go-cart track. Very fast, very loud. After 20 minutes of screaming around the track I had enough.
