The history behind this place is great. The plants on Fern Hill from all over. The science of all kinds inside. And the best part is this is all free.

Griffith park is massive so I'd recommend using uber/lyft to get around from wherever you are finished to LA Zoo! There are buses that run down Los Feliz blvd but it depends on where you're finishing up in the park!
