    How many cities have their own museum district? The 1,200-acre Balboa Park is essentially that—home to 17 different institutions including MoPA, TheNat, and the Timken. And the greatest thing about them being in the same vicinity? A $129 pass that gets you into all of them for an entire year (Zoo not included). Genius, San Diego.
