I went to Balboa Park today but it was crowded, so I decided to go somewhere else: Spruce Street Suspension Bridge - a tucked away hidden gem in San Diego. Locals come here to escape the crowds and for some peace and quiet away from the hustle and bustle.
It's a unique spot to watch the sunset or to bring a date! There are about 10 coffee shops within a mile radius of the bridge; so grab your favorite beverage and come out here for a stroll.
It has a great view of a little bit of downtown, but there's also plenty of foliage. Did I mention it's also labeled as a Historic Spot?
