    Huntington Library is one of the most beautiful and interesting places in Southern California. World-class gardens are amazing. The art collection in the museum is amazing. Precious books and manuscripts are invaluable. This is a photographer's paradise. Be sure to look at the two famous paintings "Blue Boy" and "Pinkie". There is also a children's section. We've been here many times, and we're happy every time. The environment is quiet. Coffee shops are also good. I promise you'll have a great time.

    Huntington Library, Getty Art Center, the world-class paintings, the great manuscripts that have changed the course of human beings, and the beautiful buildings are all stunning and indescribable. In the afternoon, I went to the Huntington Library in the suburbs. There are so many private libraries and so many authentic and valuable materials in the world. The Huntington Library outside Los Angeles has raised our horizon. On the surface, this is a library. More than 1,700 university professors in the United States ask for information every year. In fact, it is a private manor that integrates library, art gallery and botanical garden. Huntington Library's collection of rare books and manuscripts is among the best in British and American history and literature. For scholars, Huntington is one of the largest and most complete research libraries in the United States. This destination hasn't appeared on any group tour products, and few free travelers have come. We hardly see a few Asian faces on this trip, but feel that this "library" is too worthy of recommendation. Interested friends suggest not to abandon the large electric light evolutionary history park. There are botanical gardens, desert gardens and so on. The sculptures in the park are very beautiful, Tuhao's. I don't understand the world. The cultural local tyrants are even more elusive. I can only open my mouth and continue to be surprised. The magnificent library is exquisite, exquisite and elaborate. How can antique books be carefully repaired? It's a craftsman. The light and shadow effect of this painting makes me feel that the top graphics cards are weak and explosive now. I want to kneel when I look at this painting from a distance of one meter. The projection of the twelve constellations is very beautiful. The Huntingtons are also the collectors of classical furniture. The botanical hall in the park covers a large area, as well as all kinds of flowers in the greenhouse. Chinese gardens, quite a few of the charm of Suzhou gardens, no doubt in the park and ate a Chinese meal.

    Huntington Park is characterized by the style and characteristics of many countries in Paul. Museums of modern and contemporary art are also worth visiting. Especially like the rose garden, how can you choose to drink an afternoon tea in it? When visiting Chinese gardens in the United States, I can't help sighing that such a poetic restoration is inexplicably cordial. Japanese gardens are also very unique. African gardens and Australian gardens can be strolled slowly.

    The winding path leads to the secluded place, and the Zen Chamber has deep flowers and trees. Mountains are pleasant to birds, but pools are empty. " Chinese gardens, Japanese gardens and tropical rainforests are so amazing that I can't imagine coming out when I go in. They deserve to be the most unforgettable Garden Museum in the world.
