Travel Tips to San Diego (SAN)
San Diego – Surfing and More in the Southwestern USA

The city’s location was once occupied by Kumeyaay Native Americans, belonged to New Spain in the early 17th century and then Mexico from 1822 until 1850. So, it’s no surprise that San Diego’s boasts a mix of architecture from its Spanish and Mexican past.

Balboa Park –Ornate Buildings Surrounded by Greenery
At 4.9 square kilometres, wide, Balboa Park is the largest public green area in the city. It was founded as an undeveloped green area in 1868. Gradually the land was enriched with themed gardens and a few buildings, and the Panama Canal Exhibition took place here in 1915 to mark the completion of the Panama waterway. Twenty years later the park was used for another exhibition – the California Pacific International Exhibition. The Old Globe Theatre erected then still exists and along the main path through the parkland, you have a choice of seven museums which focus on art, technology and science.
Old Point Loma: A Panoramic View from a Nostalgic Lighthouse
Within the grounds of the Cabrillo National Monument, you can see the Old Point Loma lighthouse. It was commissioned in 1855 but turned off in 1891. Despite its modest height of 14 metres, you can enjoy a nice view from this lighthouse, which overlooks San Diego, the Coronado Peninsula and the Pacific. In the second building, there is a permanent display about lighthouses. There you can see a lens from a lighthouse lantern up close and find out about life in a lighthouse more than 100 years ago, with a self-guided tour.
