Description: "The Huntington was founded in 1919 by Henry E. Huntington, an exceptional businessman who built a financial empire that included railroad companies, utilities, and real estate holdings in Southern California. Huntington was also a man of vision – with a special interest in books, art, and gardens. During his lifetime, he amassed the core of one of the finest research libraries in the world, established a splendid art collection, and created an array of botanical gardens with plants from a geographic range spanning the globe."

Come here just for their display of books and exhibitions that are awesome! Bring a book to read on a lawn in the most heavenly place in the world. Many gardens and a bookstore with wonderful blank journals.
