Secret Garden May 27, 2011
Great little escape from busy southern California. The famous "Blue Boy" painting is held here and multiple exotic gardens. There is a free day every first Thursday of the month but you need to request tickets in advanced from their website.

Nature and Art...Collide! Jan 21, 2008
Discreetly tucked away in a residential area in the San Gabriel Valley, the Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens is a beautiful space to take a stroll, to marvel at nature, and to appreciate masters of art.

Spread across 120 acres, the Huntington has something for everybody. There are 14 themed gardens with total botanical collection of 14,000 different species. The most famous painting in the Huntington art collection is The Blue Boy by Thomas Gainsborough. The Library collection is also impressive with a Gutenberg Bible.

I have been to the Huntington several times now and my favorite part is the Japanese Garden with a huge koi pond and moon bridge.

When I went in January, the Chinese Garden was still under construction but it is now complete and open to visitors.

The Huntington is closed on Tuesdays. On Monday and Wednesday through Sunday, the Huntington opens at 1030 AM and closes at 430PM.

Admissions are: Adults $15(weekday) and $20 (weekend & Monday holidays), Seniors $12 (weekday) and $15 (weekend), Students (age 12-18, or with full-time student I.D.) are $10 (weekday, weekend, & Monday holidays), Youth (age 5-11) $6 (weekday, weekend, & Monday holidays), and Children (under 5) are free.
