Night Out: Enchanted at Descanso Gardens
We have been talking for years about going to Enchanted Season of Light at Descanso Gardens, and for some reason or another it never worked out. This year, we were determined to make it happen and we did! I purchased tickets online about a month prior (some days do sell out fast) and planned out our afternoon to get there for our ticket time. Parking is super easy and they have plenty of staff to direct you as to where to go in the lot (parking is free!) and I have to say, throughout the entire experience, the Descanso staff was SO friendly. We were greeted at every turn, and had many lovely interactions with the staffers there which just enhanced the experience that much more. Now onto the most important part - the lights! This is truly a spectacular event. The vignettes they have set up are absolutely stunning, and truly magical to walk through. There are dozens of stations all over that have different themes and each one has its own character and feel. We had such a blast walking through and taking photos, and just taking it all in. Another one of the highlights, was that they have cocktail stations set up with some pretty impressive offerings. We opted to stop at the Whiskey Bar for a Hot Bourbon Cider to take with us on our walk and it was so good! I would highly recommend getting tickets to Enchanted, and taking advantage of the beautiful holiday experience they offer. We love Descanso all throughout the year, but this was just an extra special trip. Can't wait to make this a yearly tradition now!
