LA Arboretum

I've been going to the LA Arboretum since I was a kid. This past Sunday I took my wife and our 2 year old daughter for their first times. The grounds cover over 100 acres and It's a great place to go walk around or just sit and relax. There are peafowl, swans and other birds everywhere and many types of plants from all over the world. If you grew up in the 70's - 80's you might recognize the Queen Anne Cottage from the show Fantasy Island but due to the ongoing drought in California the lagoon is down about 4-5 feet, so don't expect any de'planes landing there anytime soon. Probably the best time to go to the Arboretum is in the spring but anytime of the year can be nice as there are a lot of things to do. Here's some photo's I made while there.
