  • Incredible nature. Butterflies everywhere. Trees so big for Southern California.
  • We drove over an hour to see the butterflies. I think we only saw about ten in total, even though this is supposed to be peak season. I had an extremely disappointed three year old. What a bummer!
  • Cool place to grab a bite, watch a movie and get some shopping done. The parking and neighboring areas can have some traffic delays so plan accordingly. I recommend coming to see the Holiday Tree lighting .
  • Beautiful place to see the Monarch butterfly in the winter. They are so many you can hear the noise from their wings as they are flying. It is magical.
  • Easy short walk. I wish there were even more butterflies.
