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 - Write a Review
great place to spend most of the day. The gardens are enormous. They told me about 83 Acres. There is tons of variety and plenty of Green Space. We came about one month after Hurricane Irma. Fantastic job cleaning up and bringing the place back to normal. Some of the highlights The Edible Garden The cafe is fantastic Several beautiful lakes Nice gift shop Indoor tropical garden is amazing Butterfly garden is also fantastic Only complaint, the map was confusing the map was confusing and the placards around the park are no help.
Perfect way to disconnect from the city for a bit...It was a very beautiful and relaxing experience. You can either walk by yourself or get a free bus tour with other visitors. You can also ask for a free ride from one part of the garden to another. The staff is incredibly adorable! In my opinion it is a little bit pricey but definitely worth it for nature lovers!
This place is amazingly beautiful! I wandered around for hours in awe of the natural beauty. The free tram tour was interesting and allowed me to see the upper part of the gardens without having to get terribly sunburned. They have a wide variety of tropical plants, a butterfly garden, an orchid trail (when I went), and a fruit garden. I will go back here every time I am in Miami! We also saw lots of iguanas!
Awesome relaxing place. Lots of nature. Come for a picnic or take the tram tour or walk on your own. Variety of plants and good lunch cafe.
A wonderful place to visit, always something new to see and learn. Even if you have taken the tram tour, if someone else is doing it, they show you different things and give you different bits of information. I always go to the plant sales and festivals. They are a lot of fun and you meet a lot of friendly people. Beautiful gardens, amazing butterfly center, but also they feature things like the pine rock land garden which shows you what Miami would have looked like in the past, and what native plants lived here, it's not the prettiest but it's very important and I'm glad they have it. The Rainforest and desert gardens are also impressive. The early morning bird walks are fun too.
