Comic-Con officially begins in San Diego tomorrow and it got us thinking about ways to escape the hordes of Big Bang Theory fans for an afternoon before the real fun begins at night. We have an answer: the charms of Balboa Park are endless; acres and acres of museums, green verdant space, gardens and galleries, eateries, and cultural landmarks, to make it one of the world’s best massive parks. And it’s a favorite no matter what the season. In summer it’s perfect for a picnic (and even a wedding, though you’d be one of dozens on any given day) and at Christmas time it’s draped with lights and cheer.
We covered San Diego most recently in our June 2014 guide.
