Map to Spanish Village via MapQuest

NOTE: the above link will show you a star of where you are, but it's above our real destination by a dash.  We meet in the middle of the park (green area), so scroll down and find 'Village Place', that where it is. 

Here is Google's map.  The satellite function will show you the buildings in reality if you click on that part: http://maps.google.com

There is usually plenty of free parking in the front parking lots off either corners of Park and Village Place and on Village Place proper.

The 'Spanish Village' is a collection of small artist shops that photographers love to photograph at due to it's rich colored old buildings and flooring. It's sandwiched in between the Rueben H. Fleet Space Theatre and the Natural History Museum on the left and the zoo and the zoo parking lot on the right.  It's basically part of the Museum section of Balboa Park, not far from the Museum of Photographic Art and the Botanical Gardens, which we will visit and photograph also.
