San Diego's Balboa Park San Deigo’s Balboa Park and the Panama-California Exposition were profiled. The exposition, held in Balboa Park in 1915, was put together to celebrate the opening of the Panama Canal. San Diego used the exposition to promote itself as the first port of call for ships traveling north after passing west through the canal. Balboa Park remains a major tourist destination in San Diego.
