The plumeria grove was a little sparse, but man, did it smell good in there.

The rose garden (and surrounding lemon grove) was my absolute favorite part of the property.

Wow, this place is so neat! I can’t stress enough – it’s totally worth a visit. Plus, it’s located right across the street from a Westfield mall, so you can do a little shopping after you take in some nature. Address below:

Los Angeles County Arboretum & Botanical Garden
301 N Baldwin Ave
