Balboa Pavilion

Yet another building listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, this hall has seen multiple uses in its 100+ year history. One thing that has remained the same is the Victorian architecture. The cupola on the roof is instantly iconic. The pavilion is particularly breathtaking when the popcorn lighting along the roofline illuminates the building at night. Unlike more traditional Victorian buildings, the waterside of the building is built onto the water and features plenty of windows to maximize the views. (2017)
