Miami Beach Botanical Gardens’ mission is to “provide free public access to an attractive botanical garden, create environmental education programs for children and adults, preserve green space, and promote green living. We serve as a venue for visual and performing arts, and act as a cultural tourist destination.”
These Gardens host some of the most ancient, beautiful, rare and endangered plants in the world! You’ll be completely hypnotized by the beauty of the gardens and with all the different plants you’ll be able to see. It feels almost like you’re walking in the middle of an Avatar jungle! Hehe Simply because the plants look so different from anything you’ve ever seen or heard about.
What I also love about this place is that they thought about everyone. You can be just a regular single guy/girl and go visit the gardens for its natural beauty, to see some art exhibition and have some relaxation time or you can also be a father and take your whole family there! You’ll always have stuff for your kids to do and at the same time you’ll be able to enjoy the natural beauty of the gardens. In my point of view it is a win-win situation for any parent – you’ll be taking your kids to do some enriching activities (they’ll never get bored and will have tons of fun) and at the same time you’ll be relaxing in the most gorgeous gardens in Florida and learning a bit more about arts and plants too! I can’t think of a better way to spend a lazy Sunday than taking the whole family to these Gardens.
Starting next Wednesday (June 12th) they will have the Eco Art Camp for students between the ages of 8 to 12. The camp will be open until August 14 every Wednesday. They have a small enrolling fee of $10 only to help cover the costs of the materials. The program will allow students to play and create crafts from recycled materials and they will also learn more about international art by approaching different themes from different countries.
