The Huntington Garden's Art and Librery collections are an amazing draw all by themselves, but the Japanese and Chinese gardens are also worthy of a visit all by all means. Don't miss the Bonzai tree garden and be astounded by their age and dignity. Allow...More

This Library and museum gets better every year. The grounds are emaculate, you can walk around and enjoy the numerous gardens. Then go inside to view the massive art collection on display.

Like the art work, the gardens, library which even has a lot of unique collections. Fun for kids, seniors, adults to spend a day. The food in Chinese garden is a bit expensive. Everything else is great!

I would expect the first week of December to be very pleasant. Rain is a possibility, but the variety of gardens and the indoor art and library collections make it a great place any time of year.
