Reviewed By Arneby - Nacka, Sweden

So yeah, a garden founded by a railway billionaire some 150 years ago. Turned out that the Huntington Gardens were nothing short of fabulous. Almost Singapore Zoo class in parts. And there were colibris in the wild! And a Japanese garden. And a nice food court too.

Exit Game - Los Angeles

Exit Game is THE premiere escape room experience in Southern California. It's a group activity, an amusement park, a themed experience. Your group has 1 hour to escape a series of rooms by decoding hints and solving puzzles. Teamwork is a must!

Reviewed By Sonnet M

I've only been to one other slightly obscure escape room game in Singapore so I don't have much to compare it to but from what I can tell this place is fantastic. We were very impressed by the technology and how we interacted with it to solve puzzles (we tried the AI room). We also liked the backstory and how the AI computer 'Ada' talks to you during the puzzle. We do highly recommend going in a group larger than two...me and my hubby went and didn't have quite enough time (understandable considering the rooms are designed for groups of 6-8). Anyway long story short it was very enjoyable and we plan to come again!

Legg Lake Park, Whittier Narrows Recreation Area

Reviewed By mini - Fremont, California

We have visited Legg Lake Park and the Whittier Narrows Recreation Area numerous times. This time we visited on a Friday and there were lots of people there. The weekends are even more popular.

There are peddle boat rentals on Legg Lake. There is also fishing.

There is places to walk and jog. There is also place to ride bikes.

There are numerous large parking lots. By each of the parking lots is nice picnic areas.

There is also a very fun sculpture by the lake they are restoring; it looked like it was in the final touches. So cute to see.

Its also a good area for bird and geese watching.

The park is accessible by car, bike, or bus.

Reviewed By johnnnita - Napa, California, United States

This is a large area as part of the Huntington Gardens. At first, I was going to bypass it to view other gardens there. However, I've now grown to appreciate more the succulents that grow in such environments. They really are beautiful!

Came here to do a photo shoot, so my perspective may be a little different. Spent about an hour prior to the shoot walking around to scope out sites and I have to say this place is incredible in terms of size and diversity. Did...MoreJeremiah.....thanks for your comments. The photo-shoot was awesome. Lots of great models, photographers, poses, and energy. Hope to see you again soon since you didn't get to explore the other floor.
