The Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden consists of hundreds of acres of the most diverse collection of vegetation in southern Florida. Here you can walk garden paths surrounded by the wonders and beauty of nature, talk to experts in horticulture and conservation science, view impressive art, see butterflies and birds at every turn and take classes on everything from photography to grafting.
Even better, there are scads of volunteers milling about who are more than welcome to guide visitors around, be it on foot in small groups or in motorized trams. Very professional operation and worthy of a revisit.
