We visited during the lego display and it was quite interesting. The butterfly, the bee, the rose, even a bison with calf made of thousands of legos. The Garden itself is very tropical and well marked for figuring out the names of plants and trees. The Café Osceola Grille is very good..I would recommend the chicken salad with dried apricots..a...

A nice place-lots of plants ! Most setting include the plants in their natural settings and limited information. Became boring soon. Maybe not our cup of tea. Hope others enjoy more than us. Reasonable-flat walking is required.

Every time I am in Vero make an effort to visit McKee Gardens. There have been exhibits throughout the garden that have been fantastic. This year the Lego exhibit was very intriguing. in how the display was presented

We took the morning away from the ocean and had a nice stroll through the gardens. They have an explorer program for the kids. Make sure to read the suggested ages on the various programs. Mine are 4 and 6, so we did the Garden Explorer. The kids had a great time with their backpacks, binoculars, compass and magnifying glasses.... More

A great, peaceful and quiet botanical garden with plenty of quirky things beyond the trees, ponds and butterflies. We decided to go just to do something that didn't involve eating, shopping or being at home, outside of the beach and parks. Well worth the visit. Just give yourself two hours to wander. nd don't miss the Hall of Giants if... More
