These gardens reminded me of visiting the zoo but for vegetation. There are truly beautiful and amazing. Don't miss the Shaw home. The volunteer docents are most helpful. One major problem is that one will not have enough time to visit everything!

There was not as much to see in August as there would be in spring or fall, but we were still happy with our visit. The "Climatron" - a protected tropical biosphere - was interesting with all of the tropical botanicals. The reflecting pools with...More

The Botanical Gardens are less than a half hour away from Bush Stadium. If you like flowers and horticultural things, this is a place for you to visit. If not, don't.
