This non-profit garden has groomed paths through a natural Florida Jungle. Educational yet very beautiful and relaxing. Mc Kee always has special exhibits that make you come back over and over again.

Every season, a new and spectacular sight to see! Breathtakingly beautiful foliage, flowers, art exhibits, water lilies, orchids, a super gift shop, and a yummy cafe. Nature and history combine to make this a marvelous exhibit for all ages. Forget Disney....see Florida as God intended it. Become a member and visit often.

Wonderful to hear about the past and that there were animals as well as plants in the beginning. Always something new and exciting going on. Also seasonal events as well.

We went on a fall weekend and the floral show was fantastic. Very well cared for. We fully intend to go back some time this summer.

This is a magical, pocket oasis of well tendered land off a main highway in Vero Beach. I have visited McKee Botanical Garden many times over the years and it never fails to delight and relax me. From the Spanish Kitchen with its enormous grill (used in latter day years to grill up to 100 steaks) and lovely mosaic and... More

The gardens are not large, but a nice place to stroll for an hour or so. Fortunately, I wore long pants, so the mosquito bites were limited to my hands and arms. I probably got a half dozen or more bites within the first few minutes and spent the rest of the time scratching. The water features sport lovely aquatic... More
