A Day at the Huntington 

Wednesday, April 20 , 2016 7:00 AM -7:30 PM
Bus Tour to the Huntington Botanical Garden

Sponsored by the San Diego Horticultural Society
Hop aboard our private motor coach for a full-day excursion to the Huntington Botanical Gardens. We’ll start with private small group docent-led tours of the Chinese Garden, among the largest Chinese-style gardens outside China. Designed to promote the rich traditions of Chinese culture, the garden is truly a cross-cultural effort. Architects and artisans from China worked alongside California builders and gardeners. As a result, the Garden of Flowing Fragrance combines the botanical with the artistic and scholarly.

Lunch is on your own at either the Cafe or the legendary Rose Garden Tea Room. Afterwards you have the afternoon to explore the rest of the Huntington Botanical Gardens or Museums on your own, including the new California Garden (shown at top).

We’ll head back to San Diego in late afternoon, arriving early evening.

$89 SDHS members – $99 Non-members
