Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden - Review
Rain forest, trails and the magnificence of nature. These are the words that appropriately describe the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Florida. As the name suggests the garden is the house to many wonderful and extremely rare species of plants and butterflies. The experience cannot be rated anything less than bliss. The garden was established in the 1936 by Robert H. Montgomery, an accountant with a great deal of passion for plant collecting, as is clearly visible in the garden today. The word ‘garden’ does not seem to do complete justice to the stupendous place as the place plays host to a museum, a laboratory, a learning center and a conservation research facility.

Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, Miami Reviews
This place is so huge and packed with many creatures & nature to Photograph. I've been here on many occasions but it never gets boring! The first time I Just went to go shoot some nature photography and again, the place has so many things to see that I didn't get the time to explore it all in one day. Beautiful sights such as, lakes, waterfalls, cute bridges, butterflies, and more! There are bathrooms and sometimes cool activities. There's also a nice gift shop as well as food trucks to satisfy every palate. The second time, I went to do an engagement photo shoot and the Photos looked amazing with much variety. There's one particular place I really liked where its a vine pathway with these notes on strings hanging from the top. SO BEAUTIFUL!!
This is a very beautiful place to spend an afternoon. It’s size, alone, is impressive. There is a pervasive sense of peace here. The expanse of the place sets it apart from everything else and then it's beauty does the rest. I attended their 2018 Mango festival and didn’t have the best of experiences. After posting a review, I was contacted by their staff concerned over my time there. You’d think they brought the whole operation to a screeching halt to take care of one customer. It was REALLY impressive. Not sure that I have ever received customer service like this. Yet another reason why this place is worth a visit.
A great experience! So much to see and enjoy. Lush and beautiful tropical gardens afford wonderful photographic opportunities. We were there for many hours. Happily, there were carts for transporting visitors along the pathways, and the drivers provided a guided tour which was extremely interesting.
If you are a nature lover, my advice is to become a member of this botanical garden. By doing so, you can visit it every time you like, and even more, have free admission or discounts to around 300 botanical gardens in USA, Canada, and other islands. In this garden, the most attractive area is the orchids forest, beside of the rare butterflies pavilion.
excellent place to visit, thanks to all the staff, to Karen, Jim and the rest, they were super nice. the place is magic. The tour is very interesting. A wild variety of plants, flowers and butterflies. I had the unique opportunity to see a hummingbird.
