  • This is one of the gems of Orlando, that not everyone knows about surprisingly. 50 acres of botanical gardens with many different areas and types of plants and flowers to admire. Years ago we were lucky enough to be married in the rose garden, and it was absolutely stunning. They have sections for so many other things as well as many events. This time of year they have their annual plant and flower sale, which is a sight to behold. So many vendors come in and sell high-quality often uncommon plants.In the vegetable garden, they had specific offerings of vegetables and herbs that you take home and grow. There are numerous trails throughout the garden, some secluded some open. We’ve enjoyed coming here many times and just sitting and admiring all that is present. Definitely check it out, and take a look for the many special events, like movie night which is always a good time.
  • So beautiful; every path you take is enjoyable. There are shaded areas to explore for hotter days. They have events so check the website to see what’s going on. When the dinosaurs exhibit was there, my daughter loved it. It’s worth the price to get in because they keep the gardens so clean and maintained. We love the spot on the boardwalk and the butterfly garden. It’s usually easy to park earlier in the day; we don’t have issues.
