We travelled up from the beach to the Huntington Estate which took an hour with no traffic hold ups. If we had caught traffic it would have been a disaster as you need a full day to scratch the surface of this wonderful estate. We...More

The grounds and botanical gardens are spectacular, without a doubt (which is why it gets such continued good ratings) BUT: this place is confusing, with maps that don't take you anywhere, and with a staff that doesn't know where they are, or how to tell...More

If you are in the Pasadena/San Marino area this is a MUST! We spent the better part of a day there and didn't see anywhere near all that could be seen. The art, the different gardens and the restaurants are all delightful. DON'T MISS THIS...More

Beautifully landscaped sculpture garden. Lots of paths designed with period and cultural aspects. The art is expectional (broad range). From European to American and exhibit galleries. The antiques (furniture and objects) are quintessential to the property. What a nice broad range. The library and rare...More

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.
