It's amazing place in Coral Gables for those who loves nature. There are many rare flowers and plants, butterfly exhibition, tropical fruit exhibition and guided tour is included in entrance ticket price! You can see turtles in the pond, crocodile and iguanas! Gorgeous place to spend half day for family and for nature lovers, very informative and educative as well!

I recently went to Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden with a group and had a wonderful time viewing all of the beautiful plants. My favorite part is the Butterfly exhibit. Totally amazing as all of the different species flew around you and some actually landed on us.

We live in Choral Gables and always recommend Fairchild to friends who visit. It is such a lovely place to stroll and enjoy Florida's beautiful environment. My children enjoy the butterfly garden.

One of the most beautiful outdoor places in South Florida. A botanical garden like no other. A very extensive ocean front garden with one of the nicest selection of all types of plants. A must see!

We had a look on the maps and saw the Botanic Gardens so we though this might be a nice place to stop over. How pleased we were, it is delightful. We did not realise... More

If you love the outdoors and enjoy the plants around you, Fairchild is quite a treat! There is something for everyone here- a romantic walk with your significant other; a lazy stroll to wind down the day; an educational experience for students; or just a unique way to share some family time! The butterfly conservatory is a must see and... More
