Beautiful landscapes to view, a great restaurant for lunch! Now it is only accessible by on line ticketing, no walk ups to the box office which is closed. Wild fowl, lakes, Post Office Stamps honoring LA FLORIDA.

This is a beautiful place and a lovely walk. It probably makes sense to wait until everything is back open but the grounds are still really nice. If it wasn’t August I’d recommend it for the walking experience alone.

During COVID precautions, all buildings at Fairchild are closed. This includes the gift shop, welcome center, and greenhouses and nurseries with exhibits such as rare plants, tropical fruits, etc. Note that, on the day of my tour, their web page still said the welcome center and gift shop was open, so don't go by that info. No tour either. We can walk the garden on your own, but the garden was not set up for this, just for tours. So there are very few labels on plants, no descriptions. So you can see the plants but no background or context. Even the map of the pathways (one-way) is pretty basic. I would not recommend a visit during this period. At the very least, call yto see what is open to avoid disappoinment..

This is a very nice and beautiful garden. Mi wife and I took advantage of the early hours for Senior Citizens on a Saturday morning so she walked around and I taking pictures, testing a camera. As we are in summer, the heat was tough even so early in the morning, but no matter what, we had a very nice time there.

This has never been a reasonably priced attraction in Miami however it is worse with COVID restrictions in place. The only thing to do is walk the paths. The butterfly area is not open which is really the only reason to visit this place. It is a disgrace that they refuse to allow a limited number of people to enter into the attractions. They don’t want to employ a person to monitor the attractions. Instead they would prefer to hire people who sit in a chair with their heads buried in a phone by the rainforest area.
