If you like beautiful plants—or just like being around them—this is worth a visit. The 17-year-old garden has 170 acres of lakes and land, represents seven different natural habitats and ecosystems and has more than 600 species of subtropical and tropical plants. If you have kids along, they’ll probably remember jumping through the puddles in the water-spouting boulders that front the Children’s Garden and being an impromptu rest for monarchs in the Butterfly House. There’s also a Key West-y looking Brazilian Garden, which is a tribute to the late, great landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx; and The Preserve, home to ancient cypress, mangroves and marshes. Open 9AM - 5PM daily; admission is $12.95 for adults, $7.95 for children ages 4-14; kids 3 and under get in free.
