The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens - a picturesque, popular spot for weddings, dates, and school trips.

There’s plenty to do at the Huntington Botanical Gardens! With 12 gardens to enjoy you’re bound to discover a favorite location to relax in. The Japanese Garden, Rose Garden, and Jungle Garden are just a few available options. If you’re with children, be sure to check out the Conservatory and Children’s Garden.

For writers and book lovers, the Huntington Library houses rare items including the First Folio editions of Shakespeare plays and a manuscript of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. The Art Collections include both European and American art; some popular pieces are Gainsborough’s Blue Boy and Lawrence’s Pinkie.

I love getting a dose of history, art, and nature all at one venue. Solo travelers, this is an excellent place to visit on your own! Find a garden spot, people watch, or catch up on your travel writing.

Check the calendar for tours, classes, and event information. There’s tea time, outdoor summer concerts, and a “Free Day” the first Thursday of the month (but you must RSVP in advance).
