I have a thing for world fairs.
I was going to say I've never been to the site of a world's fair, but that would be untrue, I've been to Seattle Center many times(I went to gradual school up there). I don't think Balboa Park ever hosted a "world's fair", just exhibitions in 1915 and 1935. I've not been there in probably 25 years, I've been talking with a fellow photog about shooting IR there.

ETA: As far as other exhibitions, the campus of the University of Washington was the site of an exhibition in the early 1900's. I've spent a great deal of time there.

ETA2: Oh, a note of thanks to everyone here, I led a group of photographers though Chester Place and St. James Square this past Sunday giving them little historical tidbits along the way. Most of which I picked up at this here site.
