This is the most beautiful botanical garden I've been to. It's has a great variety, loved the little trails and my favorite was the water garden. I could have spent an entire day just sitting on a bench.

I know they have two restaurants there, a cafe and a bistro, but I don't recall seeing any alcoholic beverages for sale. You can probably check the menus for each place online. I believe they are called the Hive Garden... More
