"Fast Shortcut Cut across the town"

If you need to get to the central part of San Diego from US 15, Pershing Drive is a great way to do it. The road is well constructed and traffic flows very smoothly even during peak hours. There is not much in the way of stores or anything else on this road. It follows the canyon of Balboa Park so the drive is rather scenic.
This is also the best access to Balboa Park, cutting off most traffic from the downtown access. Just take Florida Drive and follow it up to the 2nd street light and you are in the center of the park.
