Chinese Garden at the Huntington Library

A post shared by romy (@romyvalentina) on

The Huntington Gardens and Library features some of the most beautiful gardens you will ever see in LA, let alone anywhere!

There are many cultural gardens such as a Japanese garden, a Chinese garden, a California garden, a desert garden, a rose garden, an Australian garden, and so much more!

We can be honest that the gardens here are truly beautiful and well-maintained. They are absolutely humongous and definitely take time to walk through.

Thankfully, it isn't tiring at all since the views are so great -- and the photo ops so good!

If gardens aren't enough for your heart's content, then know that the Huntington also features a library! This isn't any old library, though; the Huntington Library does indeed have books and media available for checkout, but there's more!

It actually features an extensive art collection focusing on classic European and American art; it's enough to interest casual art fans as well as serious art aficionados.

The Huntington Gardens and Library are a true gem of LA, and it's 100% worth the trip. Just be careful since it’s only open ‘til 5 P.M.!
