Relaxing and beautiful gardens, with an abundance of waterlillies. I never knew there were so many varieties, and now know the differences. Being an historic site is an added feature. I would like to come back when it's not so hot. The staff was very friendly. Good prices in gift shop.

A walking tour here will expose the visitors to a wide rage of tropical plants. Not for children as there is nothing interactive or very exciting.

Look that word up if you need to. My wife and I visit many botanical gardens, both here and in other countries. This one is unique. It is filled with history as well as specimens. The maintenance is exquisite. The grounds are well-designed and the variety of plants ranks with the best. It was s-o-o-o good we are planning a... More

Beautiful and historic place to visit while you are in Vero. I would advise avoid going mid day in the summer time as it's too hot to enjoy the stroll. Early mornings are best and afternoons too, but watch out for the storms. If you are big on garden touring and have seen many- you won't be overly blown away... More

Mckee botanical gardens is my favorite place to go to photograph waterlilies. I have been a member for a couple years now and I love visiting the gardens. The staff are very friendly and they keep the gardens looking nice. My husband just became a member as well and we love to take our cameras and explore the gardens.

We have seen gardens in different parts of the world and this one was quite nice, but nothing spectacular.

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.
