Why You Should Go...

For the first time since 1935, Balboa Park's California Tower at the San Diego Museum of Man is open for public tours.

Climb the 125 steps to the viewing deck of the tower for 360 degree views of San Diego. Listen for animal calls from the San Diego Zoo's Skyfari to the North. Watch to the South as airplanes begin their descend over downtown skyscrapers and the Coronado Bridge. Balboa Park is bustling to the east with a beautiful backdrop of the Laguna Mountains. Look out to the West and watch boats, appearing as mere specs, glide along the Pacific Ocean.

Embark on the journey up the famous historic tour for incredible, one of a kind panoramic views of San Diego.
