Yes, the botanical garden is open. It sustained major damage from Hurricane Irma. A friend of mine did a major landscaping project down there last year, and was working again with the clean up. There is lots more sun now, and, many, many new plants had to be brought in. I still think it would be worth a visit. It’s a very pleasant place.
Otherwise, I like to walk, and am quite happy wandering down 5th Avneue, over to the beach, to the 3rd Street area, stopping for food or drink when the mood strikes. Tin City might be worth a look see, but, it’s not ‘my thing’.
The Botanical Gardens were lovely when I visited a couple of days ago. So peaceful
