Escape the summer heat or the winter doldrums. Butterfly exhibit, poinsettias in winter, orchids, all fun for the entire family. One of the best gift shops I have seen. Nice relaxing time, something for everyone.

Beautiful flowers and plants, gorgeous landscaping and interactive activities for children - 2 hours is a good amount of time or more if you have it.
