This is a great place to have brunch or breakfast and then tour the grounds. The plants are beautiful and the docents provide excellent information on how the plants thrive in such a difficult environment.

It is lovely any time of the year bur the last two weeks of march and first two of April bare particularly beautiful. The restaurant is really good also. A little pricy but quite unique and worth it.

Yes. The trails are wide enough to accommodate a wheelchair, and there are ramps into the main building and restaurant. The gift shop would be too tight for a wheelchair, I think.
