Nice Visit

Very pleasant. Great scenery especially if you like taking pics. Dress appropriately for the weather if it’s hot and bring water!

Mango Brunch at FairChild Tropical Botanic Garden
Jul. 2021
Tucked away in “old world Miami” lay in wait Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Fairchild is an absolutely gorgeous venue for any occasion; leisure strolls; weddings; birthday gatherings... A place to let your children explore the bountiful horticultural beauty that is hidden in a major bustling city such as Miami. The grounds are immaculate. You are surrounded by luscious foliage almost immersive! Light cascades effortlessly off the many lakes. The staff at Fairchild is exceptional and a wealth of knowledge. Special thank you to Director Kelly Ramer; thank you Kelly!

Mia-advertised Mango event
Jul. 2021
We are members at the Garden, but were extremely disappointed last weekend for the Mango Marketplace event. They had ONE table with a icy Mango drink and very limited mangoes. They were out of mangoes before Noon on Sunday. People came only because they thought the advertised event was a real event. Very disappointed that they mis-advertised deceiving the public. I would be surprised if they don’t lose people in future events.

Enjoyable but a bit overpriced
Jun. 2021 • Couples
The gardens are beautiful. Well maintained. Some flowers I’ve never seen before. We spent just under two hours here.

The price is a bit high though. If your funds or time in Miami are limited I would choose vizcaya over these gardens.

Best of its Kind
Apr. 2021
Ending a week's spring vacation with a couple days in Coral Gables, we visited these gardens for a few hours. Though tram tours were not being offered due to Covid, we enjoyed walking the colorful trails. Tropical flora of all sorts were appreciated in their specific locations on the property. The butterfly house, populated by flying specimens from many countries, was delightful. We'll visit again.

The garden is more beautiful than ever, and with social distancing, the relaxing walk around the ponds and gardens were a needed change of pace in this Covid era

A day in the palms
Apr. 2021
Nice to spend a spring day strolling among the wonderful variety of plants and palms at Fairchild. Lunch was quite comfortable, and the butterfly exhibit is not to be missed. Two things would improve the experience: lower the admission price and invest a bit in much better signage as to the plants that are being viewed. This place has so much upside potential.
