Lan Su Chinese Tea GardenThis was a wonderful place to visit after a heavy lunch. The Lan Su Chinese Tea Garden displays a number of tree-lined structures that showcase various architectural details that are eye-catching to say the least. The one-or-two dozen koi have full reign off the garden as water is central to the entire property. If you're in the Downtown area and would like something akin to a nature walk, this is the place--especially if it's late Summer when I'd expect to see fall colors in the trees.
An added attraction is the cafe in the tea house that offers tea and light fare. Occasionally there are open meetings of a local ceremonial tea club, as well.
At the time of writing this admission was less than $10 and well worth it.
