A wonderful place to spend time walking around, looking at the beautiful plants. Look out for the magnificent peacocks, which have made it their home. Plenty to do/see for everyone.

Burger Restaurant
“If you've never heard of In-N-Out, then you certainly aren't from the West Coast. Found only in California and a few special nearby states, In-N-Out has become the iconic fast-food hamburger spot. In an effort not to raise your hopes too high, it might not be the best burger you've ever had and there might be a really long line, but its alright and very popular.”
