We spent 1 hour meandering through the different gardens - definitely worth a $10 donation upon entry. Gorgeous views.

If you love plants, butterflies, interesting trees and don't mind an occasional jet overhead you need to stop in. The suggested donation is 5$ per adult. Worth it! They have many different species of palm trees which we loved. We were there in October when...More
