I spent a peaceful couple of hours wandering through the wide variety of botanical landscapes, laid out in an easy-to-follow loop. There are also several outdoor gardens. This was a nice way to unwind at the end of a busy day.

Looking for something to do in the a.m. I selected the Botanical Gardens. It's really quite interesting and informative. Do get the free audio guide when you go. The visit was much improved by the information there. Reasonable price, plenty of parking.
