Restful Botanical Garden in Balboa ParkThe building housing the gorgeous botanical garden in Balboa Park is often photographed, as it sits rather picturesquely at one end of a beautiful lily pond.
The structure was originally built for the 1915-16 Exposition and houses a large collection of orchids, cycads, ferns, palms and even a carnivorous plant display.
Tip: This garden is free to enter.
