#SilverYearGoldenState – Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo

The next day of our trip to San Diego was spent at Balboa Park and the San Diego Zoo – which are both HUGE landmarks to visit in one day. I would definitely recommend spacing this out for another day as there are so many free things to do at Balboa Park. First we started with brunch at Panama 66.

I haven’t been to a zoo in a few years, and since this was the San Diego Zoo, couldn’t miss the opportunity to check it out. Most of the animals were sleeping, but it was fun to walk around and experience one of the largest zoos in the country – especially on Valentine’s Day!

We celebrated Valentine’s Day appropriately

Later that evening Matt treated me to a delicious sushi and tapas dinner for Valentine’s Day and we celebrated downtown in the Gaslamp District again.

Next up, our last day – Coronado Island and the final round of tacos!
