It’s time to see the world through country colored lenses. Curated by the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History and the Country Music Hall of Fame, Country: Portraits of an American Sound at the Annenberg Space for Photography includes over 100 historical and contemporary photos, artifacts, a digital jukebox (this is where your kids will station themselves, and you want them to, because even if you’re not a country fan, the kids should know Dolly & the Man in Black), an original short form documentary with interviews from exhibited photographers, country musicians and historians and more.

Has it been a while since you’ve taken the kids to the Huntington Garden? Fall is the perfect time, when it’s warm enough to let the kids splash in the Children’s Garden (don’t forget the change of clothes – they will get drenched!), yet not too hot to walk around (carrying tired kids, or pushing heavy strollers). And Wednesday is the perfect day, when there is Traditional Chinese music in the Garden of Flowing Fragrance. Seriously, don’t you feel more relaxed just saying that?
