Excellent day trip--and for that matter, night trip if you are a member---in addition to the beautiful gardens and very good food at their restaurants, they have evening musical performances and lectures to supplement one of the magical Oasis's in the Pasadena-San Marino area.

You don't have to be a botanist to enjoy the gardens and the animals running around. Good fun for old and young and just wonderful. Come before lunch to have less trouble parking.

Unless you get there just after a bus pulls in it is easy to purchase tickets there.

ALSO NOTE that there is one day every so often when the Huntington is free and ONLY people who have the free tickets can get in that day - you can't just show up and buy a ticket. NO, I don't know which day that is, but I... More
