BALBOA PARK – DECEMBER NIGHTS

Having celebrated its 100th birthday in 2015, Balboa Park is home to more than a dozen museums, and hosts events year ‘round. But the best time of year to come is December. That’s when December Nights attracts tons of locals, and the entire park celebrates the holidays with food from around the world, musical performances, and free admission to some museums.

Local Tip: Go early on Friday afternoon. While the event is all weekend long, the lines are shorter when it first begins on Friday.
