I always take guests from out of town to the Huntington. Gorgeous grounds, it doesn't matter what time of the year you go. They also have an adorable tea house.
This place is HUGE with 127 acres of gardens. There's a waterfall, a prehistoric garden, and peacocks roaming around. Perfect place to take the kids.
Right before you get to the beach there is this place of love, peace, and beauty. It's a perfect place to meditate, read, draw, or just be.
Most people don't even know this hidden oasis exists between the 101 and 405 freeway. There's 6 1/2 acres of water gardens, a dry garden, and a tea garden. Absolutely gorgeous.
Take some time to smell the roses. The Exposition Park Rose Garden is gorgeous, smells amazing, and it's free to see!
