I absolutely love this place. I try to make it here once or twice a year, it's different each time, depending on what is blooming. Went again early yesterday morning. It is so worth the drive. Just beautiful!

The Bridge of Flowers is a former trolley bridge that is lined by flowers on both sides of the pedestrian walkway. Unbelievable colors and plantings make this a scenic wonder to behold.

An old bridge that is beautifully maintained as a walking bridge and gardens. If you are traveling this area, its worth pulling off RT 2 and taking a stroll. Lots of art galleries and restaurants within a steps of either side.
