One of the places we hear often, and one of the best spots out there, is Balboa Park.


Balboa Park is a massive oasis of natural beauty and enriching scenery. Sitting picturesque in the heart of San Diego, it’s a local favorite and for many good reasons, not the least of which is its classic old mission architecture. From its bell-tower to the renaissance style dome, classic building beauty makes it a prime spot for popping the question to your fair maiden. You’d be surprised by how inviting and livid the place looks at night, when the mosaics truly shine and all the colors of the clay gain new depth from the shadows of the night.


Or perhaps you’d like to cross the Prado bride and enter a primal forest where the branches and leaves glisten with a white gold tint and smells faintly of the eucalyptus that surrounds the place. For those of you who are nature lovers, this is one of the best spots to bend the knee and ask away.


If none of these places strike your fancy, don’t get distraught. There are hundreds of other places to reach out and tell that special someone you want to spend the rest of your life with them. Some other great places are at the Museums, the magnificent open air water fountain, and of course, the lily pond. Which is sure to make you princess feel she’s the only one in the world.
