Visiting Miami – Miami Beach Botanical Garden

The Miami Beach Botanical garden is a very easy and compact botanical garden to explore in the Miami Beach district. But don’t let that small garden fool you with all the stunning displays and garden vignettes you’ll find around the garden that let you discover each of the garden rooms slowly while visiting these intimate and colorful spaces. This is a fantastic place to photograph nature and explore the beautiful tropical landscapes and learn more about tropical plants that are prevalent around Miami Beach.

Touring the botanical garden

When you visit the gardens, you can sign up for a docent tour or also do a self tour with signage giving directions and descriptions of the areas you will be seeing around the garden. There are two entrances to the botanical gardens on Convention Center Drive with wonderful signage of what you can see when visiting the garden. In the main entrance is a grand grassy expanse lined with exotic palms and tropical trees in full bloom. Just to the right of the main entry is the large natural pond which lined with more palm trees and other exotic plants and bordering the main visitors and administrative center below.

Art in the garden

Around the different gardens, you may happen upon some beautiful art, most made by local artisans and donating their works in the botanical garden. I spotted this gorgeous flamingo in the administrative center, painted with different genre of orchid blooms and tropical colors that made the sculpted piece stand out in this quiet space.

I always gravitate to water features when I visit any garden,  the ponds and fountains at the Miami botanical garden are set in just the perfect areas around the garden and are filled with so much wildlife. While walking along the smaller pond area, I spotted a variety of carp and other colorful fish, turtles and more tropical birds than you can imagine. No doubt, they are also happy in their perfect little water environments.

    Beautiful. If you had put the photos here and asked to guess where they were taken, I think Florida would have come to mind. there is just something about the interesting birds and manicured park.
