Very beautiful gardens with a terrific pond area and super palm trees. They have great events also like singers, Christmas shows, art exhibits. If u go make sure u visit the HUGE one piece wooden table it is incredible.

Went to McKee Botanical Garden on a date, was recommended by my mother-in-law to go and we wanted to try it out. A little smaller than I was imagined but it was a wonderful walk to see flowers and ponds. I love how there was a little history behind the gardens and it was interesting to see how they are... More

Many types of colorful flowers and trees to look at as you walk along the walking paths thru out the property. If your lucky like my wife and I were when we stopped and got the chance to see the awesome orchid up in the tree branch growing! A very nice place to spend the afternoon.

First open in 1929, as McKee Jungle Gardens, Vero Beach, US Hwy #1. Tells story of our past. Most of the 80 acres were sold in '76. Indiana River Land Trust reopened in 2001 as a Florida landmark. Now on National Register of Historic places. Loaded with "Flora & Fauna" they have lots of native plants. Cost $12.

The wide diversity of plants makes for a pleasant hour or two wandering along the many branching... More
