south coast botanic garden

SPRING SEASON IS HERE!! I know you guys are trying to find some cute places to take spring pictures for the gram. Don’t worry, I got you! Today I’m going to be walking you through one of my favorite places to go to in the spring– The South Coast Botanic Garden!

Address: 26300 Crenshaw Boulevard, Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA 90274

Expense: Free for members and children under 4, $15 for adults, $11 for seniors and students, and $5 for children ages 5-12. (Go here on the third Tuesday of each month and it’s FREE!)

IF you want to bring your dog, you’re more than welcome to! Just note that they need a ticket if you aren’t a member. All dog tickets are $5 on top of the general ticket prices!

So let’s dive in with the “know before you go” stuff!

These signs were taken in 2021, so I’m not sure if they are still under COVID regulations, but just bring your mask in case!

They’re open pretty much every day except Christmas.

The garden opens from 8 am to 5 pm.

All visitors need to have an advanced ticket reservation prior to their visit.

This Garden is HUGE. You have 87 acres of ground to cover, but don’t fret, they have digital maps for you to take a look at so you can plan where you want to see the day you go.

If you decide to check out all 87 acres in one day, I suggest you bring some comfortable walking shoes and food to refuel yourself!

**Please keep in mind that some parts of the garden might be closed or restricted due to their own circumstances or COVID-related regulations, so please check their website for the most up-to-date information!***

Picnics and outside food and beverage (this doesn’t include alcohol) ARE WELCOME! (Only casual setups only so don’t bring your lawn chairs and umbrellas!) I suggest checking their website on when you can bring the food in (which is not allowed on special event days) and what you can bring!

If you want to do more than just eat and check out plants, I recommend looking up what classes and programs they have to offer! I went last year during SOAR where you can immerse yourself in the life of a tropical butterfly in their habitat!

I recommend just giving yourself a couple of hours to half a day to fully enjoy the whole experience. I mean you get to bring food in there, so why not!

I mean that’s pretty much it on the stuff you need to know before you go… so have fun!
