The Original Lorax Tree, La Jolla CA!

We all know Lorax trees aren’t real, but this Monterey Cypress in Scripps Park is believed to be the inspiration behind Dr. Seuss’s famous creation (he could see it from his studio).

You have to admit, the resemblance is uncanny! There is no plaque or official designation, but if you ask a local where the Lorax tree is, they’ll undoubtedly point you in this direction.

Additional Fun to Be Done: Scripps Park is a perfect spot for a picnic, so pack a lunch and a blanket!

Take a Visit to the Dr. Suess Library in La Jolla, CA

Located on the University of California San Diego campus, this iconic library was renamed after Dr. Seuss (whose real name is Theodore Seuss Geisel) in 1995.

It houses the largest collection of Dr. Seuss items in the world, including manuscripts, drawings and photos.

Because the items are so precious, access is strictly limited. But the public can view the collection when the library displays them over the summer and during Dr. Seuss’ birthday celebrations on March 1st.

Additional Fun to Be Done: Don't miss the Library's celebration of Dr. Seuss' 115th birthday on Mar. 1st! Click here for all the details on how to go enjoy free cake and Seussian musical entertainment by The Teeny Tiny Pit Orchestra! Also, visit the nearby campus bookstore to pick up Seuss supplies like pencils and T-shirts.

My Personal Favorite, The Legends Gallery in La Jolla, CA

This is my personal favorite. I can’t count how many times I’ve taken my children to this gallery, and it NEVER get’s old!

This art gallery, located in downtown La Jolla, specializes in “The Secret Art of Dr. Seuss,” showcasing 70 years of Seuss’s paintings and sculptures. In addition to the whimsical images children love, there are also more satirical works, including several poking fun at high society.

The entire collection is also viewable online, but there’s nothing quite like seeing his artwork in person.

Additional Fun to Be Done: Visit the nearby Cave Store, home of the Sunny Jim Sea Cave, which offers a unique view of La Jolla Cove.
