I was very excited to visit Allen Garden's but was quickly disappointed. The plants inside are very boring. The only one I found interesting was the cactus. I saw a lot of homeless people here and I did not feel safe. It is very small....More

The green houses are spectacular just for their architecture! They present special exhibits throughout the year; we try not to miss any. Christmas is always very special.
