Looking for something to do in the a.m. I selected the Botanical Gardens. It's really quite interesting and informative. Do get the free audio guide when you go. The visit was much improved by the information there. Reasonable price, plenty of parking.

The glass greenhouses were very nice to visit. There were about 8 different gardens under glass, plus a children's play area and events area. A small rose garden outside rounds up the visit. Since this is all indoors, it makes a nice stop on a...More
