Really appreciated the beauty and history, especially the butterfly house. My Kids however, didn't enjoy the amount of walking. Would suggest leaving younger kids at home and save the complaints.

Been here before, seems like it's still recovering a bit from the hurricane. It is a nice place to walk around and spend an hour or two. Come early though because it has limited shade and can get hot.
