Beautiful place to spend the day. Nice exhibits, The cafe is not a gourmet delight, but again you are not here for the food. Good place to stretch your legs, take your dog, a romantic date, You can also host weddings, birthday parties, etc. The 🚎 ride is worth taking before you explore the parking your own.
I’ve been a member for almost 10 years. When the weather is mild it’s a great place to get away and appreciate the natural beauty that the garden has to offer. The butterfly garden and cafe are great for getting out of the heat. It’s really peaceful and tranquil place to visit. They also have many festivals and activities throughout the year that are free for members. If you appreciate natural beauty, this is definitely a place to visit in south Florida.
