Descanso Gardens (La Canada Flintridge, CA)
There’s plenty of fireworks in the explosions of color you’re likely to see at the famed Descanso Gardens in La Canada Flintridge on July Fourth. Enjoy America’s beauty and bounty with the family by exploring this gorgeous 160-acre outdoor wonderland, featuring the Camellia Forest and floral displays in the International Rosarium, natural growth in the world-famous Japanese garden and Oak Woodland, and history in the center’s Boddy House. You can also check out the California Light exhibit of plein air paintings of the West in the Sturt Haaga Gallery and purchase a separate ticket on site so kids can ride the miniature train known as the Enchanted Railroad around the lovely grounds. Take advantage of the holiday to experience one of SoCal’s true natural treasures.
