Gardens of the Desert

As spring blooms into summer, our hotel in Perris, CA is tantalizingly close to some great places to get a Vitamin D fix! Whether you choose to spend your days amongst gorgeous gardens or lush groves of oranges, lemons and grapefruit, this summer will be a sweet one.

Citrus may not be the only King in California, but its influence on the state is still going strong here in Perris. Home to California Citrus State Historic Park and Botanical Gardens, citrus is part of the landscape at every turn. California Citrus State is both an off-the-beaten-path landmark and a genius summer destination, with its sunny hues and greenery. Take a trip there, and learn about everything citrus, from the first two navel orange trees planted in 1873 to the present day.

And if that’s not enough to quench your thirst for nature, why not make an outing to Willow Creek Springs, home to some excellent gardens and natural products? With a thriving nursery, trees, herbs and perennials, their focus on health and wellness has led to some truly distinctive natural skin care products. Take some gifts home with you after a stroll through their lush gardens, whether it’s plants, cosmetics or soaps.
