Needed a Classical music fix surrounded by magnificent architecture? Come to Balboa Park in beautiful San Diego, CA.
Presented to the citizens of San Diego in 1914 by brothers John and Spreckels, the ornate, curved Spreckels Organ Pavilion houses a magnificent organ with 4,518 individual pipes. They range in length from the size of a pencil to 32 feet, making it one of the largest outdoor organs in the world. Visitors can enjoy free hour-long concerts on Sundays at 2pm, given by civic organist Carol Williams; free concerts are also held in the evening during the summer months. There's seating for 2,400 but little shade, so bring some sunscreen.
A definite must do on a sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm and best of all it's free!
