Fodor's Review

The five acres are home to a variety of experiences: a tropical greenhouse; a sensory garden, where you can touch and smell the plants and listen to the abundant birdlife; historical gardens that display the Mediterranean landscaping the property's original owners planted in the 1930s; a garden designed to attract birds; and a cactus garden. Other gardens showcase wildflowers, Australian plants, and Native American crops and herbs. From October through April, interact

with butterflies from all over the world in their own greenhouse. A delightful café is open for breakfast and lunch daily October through May. All paths are wheelchair accessible.
