San Diego is a paradise of parks. The Trust for Public Land named San Diego one of the 10 best U.S. cities based on access to and size of our parks, which comprises close to a quarter of the city’s total area. But ratings aside, the best facet of San Diego’s many parks is the diversity. From water to grass, from culture to desert, San Diego has it all.
Even though Cabrillo National Monument has fallen victim to the government shutdown (on it’s 100th birthday nonetheless), both the California state and local parks listed after the break remain open.
