Located in San Marino, California, the Huntington Library is a place of important texts, art, and beautiful gardens. The botanical gardens have been used in numerous movies. The Huntington Library houses extraordinary texts but it also has its own art collection. Among these are Chaucer's Canterbury Tales and some of Shakespeare's early editions. Although these texts are usually accessible for public viewing, use of them for research purposes is limited. One of the most popular art pieces at the Huntington Library is 'The Blue Boy' by Thomas Gainsborough. This unique blend of texts, artwork, and gardens makes the Huntington Library a very unique visit and one that many can enjoy.
