Thursday evening summer concert season a bonus in this glorious place: Terrific groups (Susie Hanson Latin Jazz Band my latest rave - lotsa salsa dancing), lovely food available, stunning mountain views. (TIP: to skip the need for being in-line, order tickets online.)

This is a wonderful 86 acre botanical Garden just off the California 210 freeway. There is a large area of "California Plant Communities" which invites you to think about groups of plant communities and not just individual specimens. The price for adults is only $9...More

Have been wanting to come here for years but didn't have a chance until now and what a delightful experience it was! The gardens had their special wildflower show as well, which was just icing on the cake. Delighted to have an electric cart system...More

Spent several hours there yesterday. There's much to see, and the gardens are beautifully landscaped. As I have some mobility issues at present, it was great to see a lot of benches available, so that one could sit and rest awhile, after walking along the...More

All plants are native to the area but since this botanic garden is near three climatic zones (mountain, desert, coastal) that provides lots of variety! Extensive paths lead to various levels. The ancient live oak tree on the lowest level is magnificent. We've visited numerous...More

take an hour or two to get away from the crowds. Not only will you get to know indigenous plants better, but you'll start hearing your breathing and slowing your thoughts/ Great place to get away from hubbub.

We were searching for something to do which was close to home, easy to get to and not crowded. We found it! Most plants were dormant because it's still "winter" but I can imagine how different it would be in the spring when flowers are...More
