the rise of the jack o’lantern

Descanso Gardens

The entire family-friendly 45-minute stroll through the grounds. The path is stroller and wheelchair accessible.  It’s not scary, like a haunted house, so it’s appropriate for all ages (unless your kids are afraid of the dark – that’s he only scary thing here!).
