I wanted to get out of the house and do something so we drove south to Vero Beach where we found McKee Botanical Gardens. It is relaxing and meditative. - spent 3 hours just walking around. It was a bit warm but we found some shade on some of the paths which wander through the gardens. Not a large garden... More

This wonderful escape from the norm is a very happy space to spend several hours. The layout of vegetation affords users a chance to escape into their own fantasies. The wonderful foliage is a delight to see and every time that I go which is at least twice a year I see something new and refreshing. The gift shop affords... More

I went here with my husband & father. My father had been before, but it was our first time. Very relaxing to walk around the gardens. I like to take pictures & there was no shortage of subjects. Beautiful flowers, trees, ducks & ponds. We had a wonderful time & would go back again in a heartbeat.

We spent a few hours here and I've never seen such a beautiful Botanical Garden than this one. The men and women that give their time here so so helpful and friendly.

Having been a member of the Missouri Botanical Garden, I'm spoiled! However, this garden is a delightful excursion and easy to explore and enjoy.

Only took about an hour and a half to walk through the gardens. Very tropical, as it is a " jungle" garden. Sit on the whispering bench and watch the pileated woodpeckers fly through the royal palm grove! Great place to photograph colorful water lilies too.

I was traveling with several people who have difficulty walking, they were able to maneuver the well maintained path very easily. We visited while the water lilies were all in bloom, quite astonishing to see the variety of colors there are. Don't miss the rainbow eucalyptus at the entrance, at first I didn't think it was real!
