01_2015-06-04 14.44.33_lr

The Huntington Library, Art Collections, and Botanical Gardens (known locally as “The Huntington”) is a research and educational institution located in San Marino, California. Established in 1919 by Henry E. and Arabella Huntington, the Huntington encapsulates their passion for special interest in books, art, and gardens. This eventually led to The Huntington becoming the perfect research (hands down one of the finest research libraries in the world), education (through its expansive art collection), and aesthetically pleasing botanical destination (by way of its meticulously maintained grounds, providing a globally accurate, geographic range of botanical gardens for visitors to enjoy.

Visit this wonderful place when you can. There is just so much to see that you might find yourself spending the whole afternoon admiring one-quarter of the Gardens. FYI: There are restaurants and a tea room within the Gardens, as well as shaded picnic tables just outside the entrance of the main campus and by the Rose and Herb Gardens if you prefer to pack a picnic lunch.
