Very enjoyable and educational day. My wife wanted to see the orchids and it turned out there was so much more to see. Volunteers were friendly, informative and very helpful. Though you could see a lot in only 2 or 3 hours, I would recommend...More

FTBG is the best place to appreciate tropical plants in a garden setting and well worth the admission. I recommend taking the (45 min) guided tram tour if you'd like to learn some history of the garden and also interesting tidbits about plants themselves. The...More

This place is calming, soothing and beautiful. I loved the butterfly exhibit, and the tram ride and the gardens. Did not have a chance to explore the aviary, wish we had more time to see it. The food was scrumptious!

This environmental treasure is an absolute must if you are in the area. Bring your camera and comfortable walking attire (there is a tram tour which will take you throughout most of the gardens). It's my understanding the gardens are tended by mainly volunteers who...More

2-3 hours is average. Bring lunch or a snack. The cafe always runs out of food and the service is horribly slow.
