Garden Glow in the winter is exceptionally nice. Also like Lantern Festival and Japanese Festival. During the summer they have fountains the kids can run through. Fun time for all. Their restaurant is nice also.

We have been to the MoBOT multiple times, different times of the year. It is a gorgeous area to wander, and take in current exhibits. Most recent trip was for the Garden Glow. This is a great exhibit. Unfortunately, parking is a madhouse.

Recently visited the Garden Glow. It was a magical experience, with informed staff helping to capture the moments with the family. The hot chocolate was a little over priced, but ce la vie.

We went to Missouri Botanical Garden to see the Annual Gardenland Express. As per usual it was breathtaking. It is so well done. This year's theme was the Poinsettia.

Unless you are a botanist, a morning or an afternoon is enough to see the highlights. Otherwise you could spend a lifetime. :)

The Botanical Gardens are less than a half hour away from Bush Stadium. If you like flowers and horticultural things, this is a place for you to visit. If not, don't.
