In a land of hustle and bustle and tons of modern technology (read: LA), wouldn't it be nice to take a lil' break from it all and visit the 19th century? Right? Right? Whoa, you totally can! Head to Los Encinos State Historic Park at the corner of Balboa and Ventura Blvd., in Encino California -- a place that was, until the late 19th Century, the hub of human habitation in the Southern San Fernando Valley.
Five acres of old school parkiness, blessed with a natural spring, the water of which was reputed to be so sweet that animals would come for miles to drink from it. Today ducks hang out here. And you can be there too, every Wednesday-Sunday from 10am - 5pm.
And, on the 3rd Sunday of every month, LIVING HISTORY DAY!
Check out an afternoon (1pm - 3pm) of traditional children’s games, music, a blacksmith, docents in 1870s attire and tours of the historic buildings.
Super-random, totally fun, and oh-so-interesting.
