Fairchild Tropical Garden

A treasure since 1938, Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is the largest tropical botanical garden in the continental United States. Home to 83 acres of plants from around the world, the garden is a tourist mecca and photographer’s delight. Here you’ll find everything from 740 species of tropical, flowering trees to a two-acre rain forest where orchids, bromeliads and ferns grow in trees. A tram tour takes visitors all over the beautiful grounds, which are dotted with 11 lakes.
