Always beautiful flowers and plants. It is very relaxing in the winter to grab a latte and go for a walk.

“Beautiful walk almost any time of the year.”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Who could not love a walk/stroll with nature. Every visit to the gardens offers something new and wonderful. Bring a camera, there is a great fame around every turn.

“Refreshing way to spend a day”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

We go to Mo Bot at least once a year. Its a beautiful collection and well-laid-out for walking and sitting to enjoy the scenery. The Japanese Gardens are not to be missed! Huge collection of roses. The orchid show is a must see too.

“Well worth the price of the taxi fare.”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

I always thought if you'd seen one botanical garden, you've seen them all. Well in this case that is incorrect. The gardens were exceptional in the variety of plants, especially those imports that I've never even heard of before. It truly was like walking through the Garden of Eden with concrete paths to walk on. This definitely should be on your things to do list while in Saint Louis, MO.

“Jewel of Saint Louis”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Missouri Botanical Garden offers both a vast variety of plants and some fascinating architecture. We visited during the Chinese Lantern Festival, which showed the garden to its best advantage with colorful displays and lighting.

Anyone can find something of enjoyment at this Saint Louis treasure. Recommended for any city visit!
