Visiting the Rancho is a lovely way to spend an afternoon. It is quiet and uncrowded, but parking is limited. Stop by and spend some time.

Loved the welcoming ushers here! The horses are huge and beautiful. I also enjoyed the Native American video and the map of old Southern California that showed the Native American tribes. Thanks for your hospitality!

We had no idea this was open to the public (and free) until we met with others at a meeting there. We wandered the gardens. Impressive. I've never seen a tree so large (and so old). Great stop to take in a bit of California history. Employees are eager to share information about the early ranches in the area.

Learn about one of the early ranches in Long Beach history. See how people lived at Rancho Los Alamitos.

If you want to visit a little slice of what life was like during the Spanish/Mexican period in California history, this is a must see. The Rancho and the homestead grounds have been preserved.

We arranged for a docent tour for a group of friends. We toured the rancho, had a wonderful lunch and then toured the gardens. The docent was VERY knowledgeable and interesting. the food was yummy and reasonable. I think the tour was free. We were a group of about 14. My favorite part were the gardens, but it was all...

I volunteered for years here on Hispanic cultural projects. It is a great place to spend an afternoon. Educational and historical programming are great.
