Look for specials to receive discounted/free admission. This is one of the few places that I have visited recently where patrons are engaged with their surroundings rather than their phones. Enjoy free music and enjoy a day with the family. Remember to bring sunscreen; the...More

We like coming here and it's a beautiful place. I feel that it's probably only worth it if you get a membership. Paying the admittance fee each time to see the same things isn't something that my kids enjoy as much but it is fun....More

This was a beautiful botanical garden. The experience my family had at the butterfly conservatory is one we won't forget. We were allowed to stay as long as we wanted and the volunteers answered many of our questions about the butterflies.

We go at least k ced a year to see the beautiful flowers, amazing rose gardens and the butterflies. Fantastic for families, couples or just a quiet stroll. There are also beautiful photo shoot locations that are great for engagement, family or senior portraits.

Still plenty to see in October both outdoor and indoor in their large greenhouse. The orchids are especially nice. Also they often have special events on weekends which are often enjoyable.

as a local, I think the recommendations to eat at the Gardens is best. If you have more time, consider dining downtown, or in the FAN District, or the Museum District....just research the web. So many options in our city.
