Nestled in the heart of Miami’s gorgeous and historic Old Cutler Road, in the middle of a neighborhood, is the crown jewel of Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden. Established in 1938, this colorful and exotic attraction features an extraordinary collection of rare tropical plants including palms, cycads, and flowering trees and shrubs, vines and fruit trees, which are part of the Garden’s mission to preserve the biodiversity of tropical environments.
Art collections are also part of the landscape at Fairchild with sculptures by world-renowned blown glass artist Dale Chihuly sharing space with the foliage and adding another dimension of beauty to the surroundings. Yearly events like the International Chocolate Festival and their most famous the Fairchild Ramble held every November for more than 65 years. Ramble is where plant lovers go to get the best deals and best finds for their garden.
Any time of year, a stop at Fairchild is a must, simply to take in this natural beauty and appreciate the conservation efforts of this wonderland.
