For every nature enthusiast or plant appreciator traveling to Southern California, a stop at the Fullerton Arboretum is a must. This garden, located on 26 acres on the Cal State Fullerton Campus, houses over 4,000 plants representing the woodlands, desert, farm, orchard, fruits and the Mediterranean. Scattered amongst the gardens are a few lakes, ponds, streams and museums. Beyond being a beautiful stroll and escape, the arboretum offers tours (third Saturday of the month) and classes about how to tend your own gardens, paint, or pressing flowers. They also offer kids and junior classes as well. The Potting Shed is the facilities gift shop where you can purchase unique plant varieties and other gifts.
When visiting Fullerton consider staying right on campus at Fullerton Marriott and Cal State University. This full service hotel is close to everything and conveniently located making for an easy stay.
When navigating around Fullerton drive a vehicle that can manage the city curves and bumps while still looking good. A 2013 SLK250 Roadster from Mercedes-Benz of Encino is the ideal machine to keep heads turning.
