Exploring San Diego's Hidden Canyons

Whenever we hear locals say "life is too crazy, we need to get away,"  we can't help but think why?  Living in San Diego is truly paradise. There's so much to see and do. On the other hand, if you want to get away from it all and relax, we have that too. There are so many places that are peaceful and tranquil. And the best part?  You don't have to travel far.

For example, many people don't realize San Diego has colorful canyons just minutes from Downtown. Exploring the canyons can be so relaxing - it really is a great place to quiet your mind and get lost in your thoughts!  This time of the year is especially nice because the weather is warm and the flowers are blooming.  One of our favorite walking tours is our Neighborhoods of Balboa Park - it's a wonderful, leisurely tour that features beautiful canyons filled with wildflowers, cactus, palms and bamboo forests.

We also walk across two spectacular footbridges which is amazing! While many locals may have heard about the footbridges, we find that many have never walked across them so it's always fun to see their faces light up when they discover these hidden treasures.   The neighborhood is also filled with lots of gorgeous, historical homes. We enjoy walking through this neighborhood because all the homes are different and the gardens are beautiful. On a recent tour, one woman summed it up perfectly - "this is a great tour to get out and enjoy nature AND get some home decorating tips!"

We offer this walking tour to both private groups and the public and it's always so much fun!  The next public tour is scheduled for Monday, May 19th from 4:30pm to 6:45pm and we are offering a limited number of complimentary tickets to active military.  For more information, email us at tours@wheretours.com   We are expecting this tour to fill up quickly.

Note -  Kids must be at least 7-years-old, and be able to walk for a couple of hours.  

We hope you can join us!
