It may not be the largest botanical garden in the country, but it's definitely one of the nicest. This is a MUST SEE during the holidays when the entire garden is decorated in millions of lights!!!! It's breathtakingly beautiful.

I went here off season (without the flowers in bloom) but it was still beautiful. It felt like a hike through the woods and the bird area was great. I didn't find the butterflies though. The children's area was really cute and fun.
