The best way of escaping from the hustle and bustle is to come for a stroll around this tropical garden
Get away from it all for a day
If your body needs a rest, it would be a good idea to come to the Coral Gables neighbourhood to visit the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Opened in 1938, this huge garden, the largest in the United States, is really luxuriant, thanks to the hundreds of palms, exotic flowers, fruit trees, vines and tropical plants which live there. You will see plants you had never even dreamed of! Just go for a quiet walk around the garden and soak up its fragrance and its great beauty. It is a pure delight. If you are after something more educational, then there are self-guided tours and, if you prefer to be taken around, there is also a free tourist train which you can board and it will take you around the park. By the way, before you leave, don’t forget to visit the butterfly exhibition (www.fairchildgarden.com).
