I hadn't been to Descanso Gardens in almost two decades. My family and I visited their Enchanted Forest of Light exhibit in the new year and were blown away. It will probably be a tradition for years to come.
Enjoyed the Enchanted Forest walk through the garden and playing with the interactive light show. The girls had a great time and I can't wait to go in the spring and enjoy the blooms.
Descanso Gardens is a beautiful and relaxing place to enjoy with the whole family. They have kid-friendly options and plenty of open spaces for the children to enjoy. It is a prime place to bring your camera along as well.
A beautiful place to let the kids run around... koi ponds, rose gardens, mini-hedge mazes a la The Shining...there's a small, ride-on train that takes you in a little loop for a few extra bucks and the cafe has lots of kid-friendly menu options. It's relaxing, gorgeous, and my kids could spend all day hanging out here. I hear they have some fun "jazz nights" in the summertime, but haven't been yet.
I wasn't sure what to expect from this gift shop after spending the day at Descanso Gardens, but in addition to offering a great selection of items, most of the were reasonably priced. I bought a beautiful "Bridal Veil" hanging plant which cost more than a few dollars LESS than what I'd recently paid at a discount store. Plus, buying a plant here virtually assures that you're getting a healthy plant that's been well cared for. I also bought a beautiful votive holder for under $20 and saw several other items I'd consider purchasing on future visits.

Although Descanso is amazing during Spring and Summer, it's a peaceful an tranquil place to walk and rest anytime of the year. They're known for their camelias and their roses...and in full bloom the color is just amazing. Check with their website for their festival calendar and special events. Also, during the summer they have outdoor concerts. If you're looking for a contemplative space...you can't do any better than Descanso.
