Fairchild Tropical Gardens- Attractions in Miami

Zen. Sanctuary. Relaxation. Beautiful. These are the words that come to mind when speaking of Miami's Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. This venue is a prime attraction in Miami and a wonderful place to spend the day, walking around and exploring the rare tropical flora and fauna. You can also sit on one of the garden's many benches among the lush greenery to read a book, enjoy the water view and just mediate. It's a perfect retreat from Miami's traffic and hectic South Beach.

The Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is a beautiful attraction worth visiting year-round, but is the most flourishing in the winter and spring months. Since it is an outdoors garden, you may want to stay away on the rare rainy days that Miami has. It is open daily from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm except on Christmas Day. There are always interesting events, festivals, and art exhibits going on, so check out the Garden's website to find out the schedule.
