Valentine's Day is one of the year's most fun events, whether you spend it with your partner, friends, or family. However, you are probably wondering what you can do on this day without spending too much. Here are three wonderful places where you can enjoy St. Valentine's Day for free.
1. Otay Lakes
If you want to have a pleasant picnic afternoon, we recommend Otay Lakes. Here you will find a lake where hundreds of ducks and turtles live, surrounded by trees and with a fountain that makes the landscape something truly charming.
This is an ideal place for a basket and a picnic blanket where you can enjoy the view. We recommend, however, not to make a lot of noise or to bring any alcohol, as this lake tends to be for the area's residents. Though they don't have any problems with tourists, they could complain to the authorities if there's any noise.

2. Balboa Park
It is impossible not to include the famous Balboa Park on this list, as it has several gardens and areas where you can spend a nice moment. In addition, there are coffee shops, restaurants, and live acts who tend to show off their great talents. And how can we forget, this will be your chance to visit the park's museums.
If you decide to visit, we recommend that you go to the Japanese Garden, which is perfect for a romantic walk and with an affordable entry fee compared to the other museums.
Another area that is recommended to visit is the Rose Garden, where the flower scents and the colors of hundreds of roses surround it all. This area is known for being a place where hundreds of marriage proposals have been made. In addition, finding parking is very easy.

3. Harbor Island Park
Celebrate Valentine's Day with the amazing views of Harbor Island Park. This beautiful park offers panoramic impressive views of the city's horizon, the Coronado Bay Bridge, and all the activities that take place in this dynamic sea area.
Besides these amazing views, Harbor Island Park has a coastal trail to go for a walk and jog, as well as a cycling road. Enjoy a romantic picnic with your partner or share special moments with your friends in this unique place.
