One of the loveliest spots to behold. Small by comparison to some of the better known gardens but ever changing in its interest and beauty. I have walked through, strolled along and explored it numerous times and each time I find something that I didn't know was there. It is a total treat to visit McKee.

My BF and I love gardening and landscaping. The plant life here is beautiful, so many varieties from all over the world. Took a ton of pictures. Water lilies were gorgeous. We went on a Friday morning to avoid the worst heat of the day. Very peaceful, small, took about an hour and a half to amble around. Great history,... More

The gardens were nice and pretty well kept up. It was a relaxing walk and nice to take pictures and appreciate nature. But places like that should welcome teens and children. Posting a large sign telling customers that there are no Pokemon here (Pokemon Go game), is not inviting.

Beautiful place to spend time. Has many activities all year. Quite a bit of history in the gardens. Everyone should visit Mckee at least once.

It's a beautiful place to walk through. The greenery is nice but the water lillies are incredible.There are many things to see. Just look around and you may see some of the wild life there.

First I must say that I am not a big fan of these types of attractions. I find them boring but my wife likes flowers and exotic plants. The lady in the front office was nice and informative. There was a beautiful building by the entrance and an old Spanish kitchen. After that the place went down hill. It was... More

Love walking through these beautiful gardens and seeing all the amazing flowers. Since I can not grow anything (I kill cactus) much appreciation to the gardener. During the holidays, the lights aRe simply beautiful. Can't get enough. This should be on your list of must see while in Vero Beach.

Indeed, a beautiful place to visit. I gave it only 4 stars due to the unfriendly staff, they could use a little more customer service...

This pretty little garden was created in the '30's. it's really very pretty and there is much to see. Beautiful water lilies on the many little ponds. An interesting building called the Hall of Giants with the longest solid mahogany table in the world. A beautiful selection of bamboos and palm trees. Interesting works of art. Not a lot of... More
