When you get tired of the beach, be sure to visit the McKee Botanical Garden. This garden is a testament to the tenacity and dedication of a select group of people who first saved this beautiful spot from the bulldozers and then worked for years to bring it back to its former glory. If you read the history of the... More

Very nice but not overwhelming. If you are looking to spend an interesting relaxing day, this is your place. You may not be Wowed but it`s educational & entertaining.

Visitin Vero area for first time and wanted to take some pictures but disappointed. all we got to see was purple water lillies. The grounds were too green and not much of anything else with color. Disappointed!!! The lego display was awesome and honestly worth the price of admission. If this display wasnt here I would not have visited.

The scenery is just magnificent. Exploring the winding pathways is a grand experience. McKee is a great place to spend part of an afternoon, and remember, bring plenty of film or memory. Very unique gardens to visit.

It's not overly large, but there is plenty to see. I especially enjoyed one of the bridges. There was a little hurricane damage, but nothing detracted from the beauty.

Nice flowers plus Lego exhibit. Sunday in January was pleasant. They have a nice vine display. We had some Lilies in bloom too. Worth a visit when in area.

Beautiful year round but, have special showings through out the year. Small entry fee. They also have a cafeteria and a gift shop. Bring your camera.
