I visit at least once a year and this place is always beautiful. The butterfly exhibit is a must see, many different types. The sandwiches in the cafe are really good too!

When I moved to Miami, this was the first place I joined and love to return, often, in various times of the year. The tram is fun with out-of-town guests and the succulent garden is both a surprise and a delight!

I love this beautiful place. So wonderful, especially when the weather is a little cooler in Miami. You can spend the day here or just a few hours. The gardens are immaculately kept and the butterfly gardens are amazing. So many wonderful programs throughout the year so be sure to check the calendar of events. Mango and orchid season are...

Had not been to Fairchild in many years and rejoined. The gardens are so tranquil and scenic. We had not seen the new butterfly exhibit - what a delight to see literally... More
