Nothing is more empowering than standing up to 20,000 rose bushes without the slightest sniffle. The Exposition Park Rose Garden in South L.A. is a horticulturist's dream. Pack a picnic, pop a Claritin, and head over to this gorgeous park.
And for those of you who think it's "just a rose garden," you should know that this park has actually got some history to it. In its earlier life, it used to be a race track, a bar, even a brothel. Check it out during your visit to the California Science Center (it's right behind the center).
