Arcadia is a great place to be as there are many parks and gardens inside the city, there are many great food places as well. My family often travel to Arcadia to have a meal. One of my favorite location for photography in Arcadia is the Los Angeles County Arboretum and Botanic Garden. Not only is the garden is large with many places to photograph, the photography permit fee is affordable. Of course, once you are done with the photoshoot, you can head across the street to the Westfield Santa Anita or the Santa Anita Race Track.
