Feast your eyes on McKee Botanical Garden in Vero Beach, Florida

See also

McKee Botanical Garden is a must-stop for those traveling in proximity of Vero Beach, Florida. It’s a wonderful day trip and only requires 1 or 2 hours to walk through (more if you want to spend the extra time gazing at flowers, plants, trees, lizards, insects or small animals). Check out the slide show for some beautiful shots of the gardens!
The beaches are very close too, so hitting the botanical gardens before or after a day at the beach is a perfect-day option. The property is historic in Florida; the gardens were first opened in the 1920’s and later closed in the 1970’s due to lack of funding. Although only 18 of the original 80 acres remain (the majority were sold off and developed after the 1976 closure), thanks to a campaign by the Indian River Land Trust in the 1990’s, the Gardens were restored and re-opened to the public in 2001.
Don’t miss the color and beauty of McKee Botanical Garden! The reviews on Trip Advisor and Yelp are an honest testimony to this Vero Beach attraction.
