    Art, beautiful landscapes, elegance! All in one place!
    Although the Huntington is slightly off the beaten track on the outskirts of LA it is well worth the trip to see it. Former mansion to a well connected family this elegant home serves as an amazing museum. Home to the famous "Boy in Blue" portrait the Huntington has not only top notch paintings it also has incredible landscaping throughout the grounds. Take the tour or have high tea in a relaxing setting but do take the time to visit the botanical gardens. Coming this fall of 2010 the Huntington will host an amazing collection of Renaissance and Baroque sculptures. You won't want to miss this museum.
