Bus Tour
Huntington Botanical Gardens 


Registration Closed.

Hop aboard our private motorcoach for a full-day excursion to the Huntington Botanical Gardens.   We'll start with private small group docent-led tours of the Japanese Garden, newly reopened after a $6.8 million renovation. The garden is famous for its picture-postcard views of koi-filled ponds, distinctive moon bridge, and historic Japanese House. The spring bloom should be at its peak!

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.   We'll enjoy a light snack on board the motorcoach on our way back to San Diego, arriving early evening.
