My second visit and this time I took my wife so she could enjoy the beauty of the gardens. We walked around the central lake and through the butterfly enclosure and rare plants area. All were excellent.

Loved walking around the grounds. It's like a section of preserved Miami land. Amazing setting, you have to see it at least once, preferably annually!
