On a weekend trip to St Croix, a group of friends and myself had a chance to stop at the St. George Botanical Gardens. What a great surprise. This not my typical type of stop, but this was worth it.

Found it unfortunate for the locals who keep up these gardens that it could be more than what it... More

Loved it - so many beautiful plants and flowers growing out of stone ruins. A little unkempt, but it was gorgeous.

It was a cool experience. We went there when it was a mango parade. It was about 60 different mangoes. Also a lot of local food and live music. People was selling hand made soaps and other island stuff. It was real fun!

It's a nice walk through the gardens. I'm not a huge fan of Botanical Gardens in general, but the guidebook they give you has a lot of information about the structures on the property that kept me engaged.

We stopped here as part of a guided tour of the island, They have a very good map that you use as a self-guided tour. Lots of details about the plants and the grounds.
