  • Our greeter Renee was awesome. She was kind and explained the trails This is a great family place to walk and have a good time. It is soooo beautiful and a memorable experience. Very romantic for couple. My husband and I had an wonderful time. We are def coming back. (Bring bug spray and cold drink and dress to sweat a lot)
  • If you want to see an amazing garden with a rich history, this is the place to see. I spent more than an hour admiring all of the beauty. The price is fair, the scenery is lovely but be prepared to walk and if you have babies - leave the stroller in the car because there is a lot of going up and down. One last tip: Florida is hot and this is a natural habitat that is out in the open. So expect it and bring water. Visit my channel to see videos: YouTube - Mr Medina TV
