A wonderful escape to old Florida when it had its natural vegetation and jungle. Ideas for your landscaping and great photography ops. They often have special exhibits of interest to children as well as adults.

I have a yearly membership at McKee Gardens and truly enjoy taking my Daughter and Granddaughters. It was so much fun strolling through the garden, enjoying all of the beautiful flowers, while looking for the precious Fairy Houses that were built for this special Treasure Hunt.

This not-for-profit was wonderful to walk around and enjoy. Well worth the price of admission, there were several amazing plants to view as we wandered through the garden. My favorite part was the building deemed "The Hall of Giants". Very cool with a pretty neat history.

There is much to enjoy in the garden. Take your sweetheart and hold hands as you leisurely stroll down the winding paths. The garden is well maintained and quite interesting. Usually a well-known artist's outside work is displayed to admire.

Nothing here, so boring, there is some beautiful pants but not enough to warrant a visit. Needs more everything
