These gardens are a must visit if you are in Los Angeles. There are several different areas to see and we took all afternoon to walk round at a leisurely pace.
The area that most impressed me was the desert garden with the amazing cacti, though I also enjoyed the Japanese and Chinese gardens.
There are several places to eat and we sampled the cafe near the entrance. There was a good range of freshly prepared food.
There is also a gift shop with a large range of gifts.
I didn't visit the art gallery in the gardens.

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.

The Huntington is a great experience for all seasons, and at the cost of a ticket it's worth it to become a member. If you're local enough, membership helps to increase the value you get seeing the different exhibitions and blooming plants. The gift shop is great, so don't forget to stop by it as well.

We were here at a bad time of year (Late Winter). Go in the Spring through Fall to see the gardens. Parking was difficult. Easy to walk around.

Spring is the perfect time to visit the Huntington sprawling gardens, most of the flowering plants and trees are in bloom, there's color everywhere and natural perfumes invade the air. The galleries are also a magnet, specially the European art, the house where the family lived their last years, lavishly decorated gives us a glimpse of the aristocracy of the early XX century.
