hundreds if not thousands of Palm trees from all over the world. Most are labeled. Great place to duck into when you are working out or just taking a walk.

This Arboretum is filled with palm tree varieties from around the world. It is nothing short of amazing to view. If you're vacationing in the area, make sure you visit. It's free and next to large parking lot for easy access.
