Fodor's Review

With spectacular buildings such as a Romanesque library, the parklike campus of UCLA makes for a fine stroll through one of California's most prestigious universities. In the heart of the north campus, the Franklin Murphy Sculpture Garden contains more than 70 works by artists such as Henry Moore and Gaston Lachaise. The Mildred E. Mathias Botanic Garden, which contains some 5,000 species of plants from all over the world in a 7-acre outdoor garden, is in

the southeast section of the campus and is accessible from Tiverton Avenue. West of the main-campus bookstore, the J.D. Morgan Center and Athletic Hall of Fame displays the sports memorabilia and trophies of the university's athletic departments and championship teams.

Campus maps and information are available daily at kiosks at major entrances, and free two-hour walking tours of the campus are given most weekdays at 10:15 and 2:15 and Saturday at 10:15. The main-entrance gate is on Westwood Boulevard. Campus parking costs $12 but there's also a lot at UCLA Parking Structure 4 off Sunset Boulevard that only charges you according to the time you stay—starting at as little as $1 for about 20 minutes.
