I live on the east coast of Florida and was visiting my sister for Thanksgiving and on Friday we took a drive down to the botanical garden since neither one of us had been there before. I loved how you can walk the trails and enjoy the beauty that God created for us. FBG had nice wide paths to walk... More

We went at night just to see the lights so unfortunately I can't comment on the grounds. The lights were beautiful and nicely done. They offered some nice variety.

We really enjoyed our visit, although we had to keep seeking shade! Easy to get to from most of the gulf shore and intracoastal apartments. Be sure to visit the Heritage Village next door, we did it on two separate days, but it COULD be done on the same day if cool enough.

We visited there and it was beautiful! The way they have arranged things is great! Plenty of benches to rest and enjoy the scenery! We didn't see the Christmas lights but I would say go see them if your there!

Year round, there is something to see. Great for dates or for family. Great for the Christmas season with lights and performances. Great for weddings and for picnics. Wonderful for just a stroll.

We spent a lovely afternoon wandering about the garden, everywhere is very neat and tidy, It is really very well cared for. There are some lovely flowers and floriage. They were just putting up the Christmas lights, a shame we wouldn't get a chance to see them they look like they would be amazing.

We live in the area and come often. This visit the weather was absolutely perfect. The gardens seemed more manicured than usual. There are plenty of benches to rest and enjoy the lovely scenery. A lovely way to spend a quiet afternoon. Can't wait to go in the evening to ser the holiday lights!

A fantastic display of natural plants and flowers in Florida. Beautiful gardens with seating, refreshments and Gazebo. The holidays are the best. The decorations and lights draw visitors from all over for a display that is breathtaking.
