We have visited OC for a decade to spend time with family (not the mouse!) and have never heard of the Arboretum. We found it on Trip Advisor and checked it out. Easy to find, free parking, many interesting plants. An oasis in the concrete...More
When we went to the arboretum we were expecting a collection of local and exotic trees and it has that. It also has beautiful gardens and walking trails. This is a nice peaceful garden to enjoy and when we were there on a warm sunny...More
This is a GREAT adventure for children and adults alike. When I went, I did see many joggers, families with children, and elderly people just walking around. It is FREE to go in and out and people interested in photography can practice there without needing...More
We came here to take my sister’s wedding pictures with our family. This place is beautiful and quite serene. My wife and I have come before for picnics or just to take a stroll. Parking is limited but it has never been too bad. Great...More
The arboretum is one of my favorite places to relax and disconnect from the everyday requirements of city life. Even though it’s next to the 57 and attached to CSUF, it feels as if you are transported to a different land. It has many different...More
Wear your tennis shoes or good sandals. Plan to get lost feeding the ducks and walking around. There is so much beauty every where to go. This is a great place for little people to run around, older people to sit on benches, provides a...More
It's easy to pass up stopping here because it doesn't look like much from the outside. But the Arboretum won me over pretty quickly. It's a jewel. Give yourself some time to explore- it's a labyrinth of flora from different geographical ecosystems. It's a surprisingly...More
What Can I Do for A Day While the Kids are at D'land? (19 Replies)
I'm driving my 16 year old and friends up on Thursday, and I'd rather not sit in D'land reading while they play. So, where can I go? I like antique shopping. I was thinking of backtracking to the Bower Museum, but it's a bit farther afield than I want to go. What about the Farmers Market--any good? I'd also be happy visiting bookstores or interesting libraries, but not malls. I know, I'm just odd that way:) I love parks and gardens, too, and if the weather stays like this, that would be a...More

The Bowers Museum should be 15-20 minutes from Disneyland, it is only about five miles away. The Orange Circle is another place to visit and relax, shop for antiques, have a nice lunch at Felix. If you belong to 24 Hour Fitness there is a nice club near Disneyland. You could also hang out for a bit in the lobby of the Grand Californian and read.... grab a nice chardonnay from the lobby bar and sit by the fireplace...
Two Evenings + 1/2 Saturday (4 Replies)
Hello, I'll be in Fullerton on business next week. I'll have Thurs and Fri evening + half of Sat to check out the area. I've never been to LA, and I'm interested mainly in sites for nature photography. I'm planning to go to the Fullerton Arboretum one evening. Any suggestions for the second evening? On Sat, I'd like to drive the coast a little. Any suggestions as to where to go? Where is the most scenic area that I can hit and still get back to LAX by about 2? I'll also take...More
