We went to McKee's for Christmas, as we do every Christmas. It was nice, but I sure wish they would use colored lights.

The Gardens are beautiful, well tended and refreshing. This is truly historical since it was McKee Jungle Gardens back in the heyday of tourism along US #1 in Florida. Many plants are exotic but appear to belong in the current environment.

The water lilies were the best that we have ever seen. They are having some sort of water lily festival in June. We would like to visit here again.

McKee Botanical Garden is beautiful! My only complaint is that it is a little small! I want more! :) When I go to Vero Beach to visit my family there, they know I will want to visit McKee! That is a given! When you get there, you are enveloped by the lush flowers and plants immediately. They seem to always... More

A favorite for the family or couples. Plants that show how Florida was and planting displays to encourage the home gardener. Frequent misc. art displays as well.

Excellent exhibit this April! Family from out of town always look forward to visiting! The Lego sculptures on display were phenomenal, and my older parents really enjoyed both the exhibit and gorgeous plants, wildlife and flowers!

McKee Botanical Gardens was so beautiful! The employees were very helpful and pleasant. I was given a map to help me understand where I was and what I was seeing while I was walking through the trails. I loved seeing all of the different types of plants- some exotic and some native to Florida. McKee is a great place to... More
