The staff were so gracious and friendly and took time with my questions. Especially nice was a personal garden tour.

Even if you aren't a history buff, you'll enjoy an afternoon exploring this beautifully landscaped, and historically accurate site. Of particular interest is the Rancho's Christmas event with decorations and characters in costumes of the time - telling about events of the time - and when Los Angeles was almost a day's trip away.

It's like being transported back in time!

Always interested in California history. Take the tour. It is inside a gated community. Free entrance and tour.

What a peaceful, hidden gem situated in the middle of a private neighborhood. Don't let the guard at the bottom of the hill deter you. They are welcoming as is Rancho Los Alamitos. They have wonderful events too for all ages. Beautiful historic gardens, animals, buildings, and site. Good for all ages.

Tucked away in a gated community, Ranch Los Alamitas is a wonderful glimpse into the very early history of settlement in vast California and how the people who lived there made the land more beautiful, took care of the people who worked there and left a lasting legacy for those who came after. The house tour was fascinating and the gardens were amazing after all these years. A delightful way to spend 2-3 hours. Definitely recommend.
