Fairchild Tropical Garden information
If you need to escape Miami’s madness, consider a green day in the country’s largest tropical botanical garden. A butterfly grove, jungle biospheres, and gentle vistas of marsh and keys habitats, plus frequent art installations from folks like Roy Lichtenstein, are all stunning. In addition to easy-to-follow, self-guided walking tours, a free 40-minute tram tours the entire park on the hour from 10am to 3pm. Located 5 miles south of Coral Gables.
