Huntington Library, Art Collections & Botanical Gardens
The Huntington, the former home of a railroad tycoon, is many things—an extensive library filled with rare books, a large art collection containing numerous European prints and paintings, botanical gardens of almost unmatched splendor and a forum for regular lectures and other activities. You will also find a fine bookstore, cafe and tea room on the grounds. Come and wander through the 150 acres of colorful gardens, lily ponds and beautiful sculptures. The rare books and manuscripts in the library include some of the earliest editions of Shakespeare's works, a copy of the Gutenberg Bible on vellum and the Ellesmere manuscript of one or more of Chaucer's greatest works.
I first went to the huntington gardens a few years ago with a few friends and I've been at least three times a year ever since. It doesn't matter who you are, this is a great place to go to and enjoy the beautiful grounds, paintings, children's garden & activities, sculpture, etc.
I would recommend if you have children or a spouse to get a sustaining membership as it will support the gardens and save you money in the long run.
