People looking for great things to do in San Diego this weekend will want to consider a trip to the San Diego Museum of Man in Balboa Park. One of the most recognizable structures in San Diego, the Museum of Man features the California Tower, an iconic San Diego image that draws in visitors all year long.
The San Diego Museum of Man features entertaining and informative exhibits ranging from a history of monsters that allows kids and adults alike to create their own monsters to an in-depth look at our ideas of race to a bloody and fascinating history of cannibalism. There is something for everyone at the Museum of Man which ranges in price from free to county residents on the third Tuesday of every month to $13.00 for adults on other days. If you are looking for fun and cheap things to do in San Diego, the Museum of Man should be near the top of your list.
Not only does the Museum of Man allow you to enjoy its incredible displays and special exhibits, it also features the California Tower. For years the tower was just another sight to behold in Balboa Park, but a couple of years ago it reopened to the public for the first time since 1935. Add a guided tour of the California Tower to your visit for an additional $10.00 and learn about its history while climbing to the top. Once you have reached the top of the tower you will enjoy breathtaking views of San Diego. Look west to the Cabrillo Bridge and Point Loma and the bay in the distance. Turn east and look down on Balboa Park with the Laguna Mountains off in the distance. To the North is the San Diego Zoo, while views of the south show off the Coronado Bridge and the Otay Mesa of Tijuana off in the distance. If you are wondering what to do in San Diego this weekend, consider enjoying the view of America’s Finest City from atop the California Tower.
Funseekers can sign up to explore the Museum of Man with a knowledgeable local who can point the way to all of the top exhibits before heading over to the base of the California Tower for an unforgettable trip. Funbassadors can show others some great things to do in San Diego this weekend while pointing out all of the landmarks from the tower.
