One of seven Chinese gardens in the U.S. Small but well done. Do go and have tea and pastries in the Tea House--so good, but very popular.Make a reservation first thing when you arrive, and then tour the gardens until your scheduled time fir tea.

Other than the plant life, everything was imported from China. The structures are so impressive, all put together without nails. If you want a good foot massage, walk barefoot on the walkways. Most areas were wheelchair accessible which was great because I went there with...More

The Lan Su Chinese Garden is a wonderful place to relax for a couple of hours. The tour was definitely worth taking; lots of interesting stories and explanations about the garden and its construction. The tea house was also a nice stop.
