Fall Field Trip ~ The Getty Villa

To kick off the Fall season, my husband and I took a trip up the coast to Pacific Palisades where we visited the Getty Villa.

The Getty Villa in Malibu is an educational center and museum dedicated to the study of the arts and cultures of ancient Greece, Rome, and Etruria.  We loved exploring its beautiful grounds on a lazy, misty Sunday.  And we couldn't help but feel like we were right back in Europe!

Here are some shots from our day:

The you see what I see?

Being silly in the gardens...this is sort of our tradition.

Loving the Greek Key

White favorite!

We ended the day with a lunch on the beach at Gladstones, Malibu.  Although a bit overpriced, the food is pretty good, and you can't beat the people-watching or the view.

If you are in the Southern California area, you MUST visit The Getty (and The Getty Villa)!  Admission is FREE!
