Relaxing change of pace

Beautiful, varied and very well maintained gardens. We spent about 3 1/2 hours and could have used another full day to fully explore this gem.

This is a beautiful park with so many lovely areas. The little train ride is a good introduction to the park with an excellent narration. Then we walked round the enchanting butterfly garden, the beautiful orchid garden, by the river and we saw the alligators at the other end of the lake. There is a nice cafe for lunch and... More

Whether you want to spend an hour or half a day this garden paradise is number 1 in the US! The butterfly garden, the orchid walk and the serenity makes this garden a very special place. Take the tram tour if you are a first time visiter or even a repeat visitor.

We visit Fairchild Garden every winter, and we never get tired of the place. They have annual special exhibits which add to the garden - one year it was Chihuly glass, this year it was orchids in a natural setting. The gardens are very large and spread out, you can stick close to the visitor center or walk far away... More

This place is absolutely amazing. The variety of plants would mesmerize anyone, botanist or not! So many flowers and fruits to see. So many unique Plants you may never see in the wild. The cafe here has some of the best salads I've ever had. Smoothies are to be recommended as well. Expect to pay the price, for two with... More

Short car or cab ride from Miracle Mile area. Very nice tropical plantings and very informative staff. Do not miss Orchid walk or especially do not miss Butterfly House. We had lunch at their cafe which was surprisingly good and fresh. You can take tram to get lay of the land but we also walked a lot to see more... More

We have been a member of Fairchild for over 35 years and love it! It has one of the best Palm collections in the world and is just beautiful to walk around. The festivals that they have are fabulous and very educational.

We stopped by for an afternoon and wish we had far more time. The orchid walk was the star. The butterfly house was excellent. The best part was just walking through the wonderful plantings. We'll definitely be back.

We were lucky to have a walking tour before launching off on our own. This Garden is lovingly maintained by a cadre of dedicated guides and personnel. Tram and walking tours are available and there are seemingly endless trails to enjoy nature. We barely touched the surface of this complex Garden but want to particularly mention the butterfly house as... More
