LA County Arboretum & Botanical Gardens
Occupying the heart of the historic Rancho Santa Anita, the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden is a unique 127 acre botanical garden and historical site. Home to plant collections from all over the world, including many rare and endangered species, the Arboretum also houses outdoor historical landmarks representative of the major phases of California history.
The Arboretum is a 25 minute drive from our hotel. We will gather at the entrance for a Tram Tour of the facility (this place is more than you’d want to see in one day on foot). After the tour, you will be free to explore any part of the facility you wish, including a wonderful bookstore, gift shop and cafeteria.
This tour is offered Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. There is a $20 per participant fee and limit of 75 participants per day. Lunch is on your own.
