Indoor & outdoor masterpieces: Los Angeles, CA

This sprawling art museum is a destination unto itself, but you'd be remiss not to wander its refreshed Central Garden. The maze of clipped azaleas, blooming dahlias, and a stream form a lovely backdrop for the building and its staggering hilltop view. But don't miss the mod and marvelous bougainvillea “trees” trained up rebar arbors—they’re absolutely awe-inspiring. $15/vehicle; 1200 Getty Center Dr.; getty.edu
