Visiting the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden

Whenever I travel, I always try to fit in as much as I can - I love visiting new places that are both informational and inspirational.

My busy day in South Florida also included a brief tour through the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, an 83-acre museum, laboratory, learning center, and conservation research facility with extensive collections of rare tropical plants including palms, cycads, flowering trees, and vines. Fairchild is among the premier conservation and education-based gardens in the world and has been open to the public since 1938. 

Enjoy these photos. I wish you all a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day weekend, as we celebrate the summer season and remember those who died while serving in our country's armed forces.
