Relaxing place to visit it the centre of Miami traffic madness. Well-signed and easy to find. Plenty of parking (free). $25 per adult entrance well worth it for what most of the staff there are doing voluntarily. They are knowledgeable. Had a long talk with a lady in the butterfly house who knew so much in detail about the moths... More

I really enjoyed visiting this garden. Loved the butterfly museum. We went at 2-ish. You can go early and walk around and get nice pictures. Its worth visiting there. Don't forget your camera.

We loved visiting here. We are gardeners, and love visiting gardens around the world. Fairchild Gardens was once of the loveliest tropical gardens we have seen. Very well maintained, absolutely beautiful. Absolutely worth the $25 admission price. The butterfly house is an added bonus. Twenty minute drive south of downtown.

This had to have been one of the most beautiful botanical gardens we've ever seen. Our only regret is that we didn't spend the whole day there. The staff was extremely helpful, too. Highest recommendation.

This is a liitle pricey but you could take a picnic and spend the day here. The gardens are large and well set out. There is a tram tour that runs about every hour. The gardens were very pretty a had lots of seating dotted around. Cafe too was very pricey.

Fairchild Tropical Gardens offers a unique experience for all. Expansive grounds are easily accessible with the help of tour trams. The leave frequently so they are easy to catch. Volunteer guides are very knowledgeable. You will see varieties of plants found only in glassed conservatories in other places. This is more than a gardens...it is a tropical laboratory where students... More

We love Fairchild! They have expanded since our last visit. Come this weekend for The Ramble! Awesome plants and orchids for sale! If the kids start to fidget, Fairchild is Pokemon Go heaven!
