Much to my surprise I found a “real” attraction in Los Angeles that doesn’t require a bank account to enjoy. Nothing intentionally fake, or glitzy. Solid entertainment.
While living in Southern California about 35 years ago I visited the Getty Museum, now called The Getty Villa. This second campus, The Getty Center opened in 1997, and I spent a day taking in some of the art, architecture, gardens, and wonderful views.
Parking is the only expense to enjoy this venue. After parking I took a tram up the mountain to the entrance.
The only way to describe this place is VAST! The architecture is large.
The garden area seems to be part architecture in nature.
With the diverse nature of the flowers, I imagine that the look of the garden changes continuously.
The day is over, and the tram is ready to take us back to the parking garage
The art work inside included all genres, and from all time periods. Exhibits are constantly changing. To find out what is new there is a very complete website. Should I find myself in the area I will make a return trip.
