A popular tourist stop and one of Southern California’s must-see cultural destinations, this 207-acre complex was once the private estate of railroad magnate Henry Huntington and is home to a library collection of rare books and manuscripts, a special 18th century art collection, and 12 stunning specialized gardens representing different parts of the world (Japan, Australia, and China are just a stroll away). Feeling extra fancy?
