I've heard of the Quail Botanical Gardens because of its bamboo grove. Located in Encinitas, CA, its 20 miles north of San Diego. I hadn't visited the website until tonight and was surprised by how big it was and the amount of gardens it actually had (35 acres), from a tropical rain forrest to a succulent garden to a subtropical fruit garden.
We are planning a trip to Southern California this summer. If we happen to be near there, it may be worth a trip. Anyone been there before? If so, please share.
