Balboa Park offers a relaxing atmosphere in San Diego. Simply stroll through the grounds and enjoy the open space, gardens, and walking paths. Twelve-hundred acres make up a landscape of gardens filled with unique plant species to enjoy.

There are a number of Lawrence Welk timeshares for rent at the Welk Resort. Once your stroll through the park is complete, you can head back to your rented space at the resort for some further relaxation. The San Diego Welk Resort features a number of great amenities including a theater, grilling station, horseshoes court, beach volleyball court, and multiple recreation centers.

Taking a San Diego wine tour is a great way to spend your time. Not only does it allow you to taste different wine offerings, but you also get to experience a number of unique places along the way. Wine tours do not simply include a few stops at different wineries. They take you through the countryside to see a number of sights along the way. It is a unique adventure that everyone should embark on at least once.

You can also head out on a hike or bike ride in San Diego from a number of different points. The Golden Hill Trails Gateway is a top choice for beginners to start. There are three main offerings in that space, including a half-mile trail that is marked by orange trail markers. The second choice is the 4.4-mile hike that is partially shaded by eucalyptus trees. There are mainly dirt trails, although some parts are typical road surfaces. The trail is medium difficulty and is marked with red trailer markers. The third option is marked by blue signs. It covers 6.8 miles and is much more difficult to get through. It is for more advanced hikers.

Once the tour or hike is through, head back to one of the Lawrence Welk timeshare points to find a place to rest. You can buy a timeshare like this to make your vacations easier and more fun.

Cultural Experiences

Balboa Park is not just about relaxation. There are many cultural aspects as well. Found within the vicinity are museums, performing arts centers, and more. Centro Cultural de la Raza is just one option. This museum is dedicated to preserving art and culture from Latinos, Mexicans, Chicanos, and the Indigenous. The Museum of Photographic Arts is also located here. It showcases thousands of images representative of modern works as well as historic pieces.

The Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House offers insight into the history of San Diego. The house was built in the mid-1800s and is the oldest one in the Historic Gaslamp Quarter. House tours are available to allow you to explore the home. The entire Gaslamp district lets you visit old time saloons, brothels, hotels, and even a funeral parlor.

Fun, adventure, culture, and relaxation all awaits you in San Diego. Explore the aforementioned options, or head out on your own to find some new favorite destinations. There is plenty to keep you busy in America’s finest city.
