Fodor's Expert Review Vanderbilt Arboretum

Midtown and Edgehill Educational Institution
Free
Vanderbilt’s entire 330-acre campus is a designated arboretum, with more than 6,000 identified species of trees and shrubs. Guided tours are available via smartphone, and many famous trees (such as Sir Isaac Newton’s Apple Tree, a descendent of the tree whose falling fruit allegedly inspired the physicist’s theories on gravity) have plaques that tell visitors the story of their ecological and historical significance. Other trees have QR codes that visitors can scan with their phones to learn more about a specific species.
