Some natural places always the best choose for vacation for family and kids. I'd like to introduce the travel around Los Angeles, some must see spots in north of Los Angeles you don't miss. Whether you are planning a road trip or the ultimate weekend of luxury and pampering, Los Angeles is the place to be.
Bristlecone Pine Forest - Near Bishop, about a 5-hour drive north of LA. Home of the Methuselah Tree. The Bristlecone Pine Forest Visitor Center is usually open late-May through the end of October. The center is the interpretive focal point for the oldest living trees in the world, the Bristlecone Pines. The interpretive center has exhibits, a natural history sales area, self-guided interpretive trails, and rangers on duty. The area also has restrooms, picnic tables, hiking trails, and a nearby campground. (Bring your own water).
Kern County Museum - Contains over 50 historic structures and exhibits depicting the history of Kern County, California, and the West set amid 16-acres of beautiful grounds.
Santa Barbara Botanic Garden - Sixty-five acres and over 5 miles of paths meander through an unrivaled collection of California flora and offer panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and Channel Islands. Eight different habitats represent various regions throughout California, including redwood forests, oak and canyon woodlands, meadows and deserts.
Madonna Inn - Located in San Luis Obispo, about a three hour drive north of Los Angeles on Hwy 101. Each of the Madonna Inn's 109 rooms is uniquely decorated with a special theme and color scheme, no two alike!
Orchid Farm - At the Gallup & Stribling Orchid Farm, you'll be able to take a firsthand look at the largest orchid growing operation in the United States and learn something more about the breeding and cultivation of these beautiful flowers. The center also features beautiful potted orchid plants for sale. Located in Carpinteria, near Santa Barbara
