3 REASONS TO VISIT FAIRCHILD THIS SEASON

JOURNEY THROUGH FAIRCHILD’S RAINFOREST

Have you ever been to a real rainforest? What about a cloud forest? Well at Fairchild, you can discover both! Journey through a cloud-like veil of mist as you experience stunning waterfalls, meandering streams, and the unique blooms of the rainforest. Make sure you check out the National Orchid Garden growing throughout the rainforest.

FLY INTO THE WINGS OF THE TROPICS

Fluttering, flying, flourishing…witness the transformation in real time at the Wings of the Tropics exhibit in The Clinton Family Conservatory. See hundreds of butterflies, in every color and size. If you’re lucky, you may even have one of them land on you!

EXPLORE THE TROPICAL PLANT & RARE PLANT CONSERVATORY

Ready for an experience that’ll delight all your senses? As you head to the Tropical Plant Conservatory, prepare to be surrounded by lushly lined pathways. Feast your eyes on the amazing multi-colored blooms and let the tranquil sounds of nature transport you to paradise. While you’re there, don’t forget to stop and sniff the flowers.

EXPERIENCES AT THE GARDEN

“Wonderful venue and experience. The gardens are nicely taken care of and we had a fabulous family day surrounded by nature. Will definitely visit again!”
-Tatiana T.
“This place is huge. So well maintained. Beautiful beyond words. I felt like i was walking around a fairytale garden and park. The best garden I've ever been too.”
-Misty M.
“It is an enchanted garden by any measure. Dozens of different palms, multiple types of bananas, great variety of orchids and begonias. It is wide open. Though there are many visitors one feels alone with only butterflies and singing birds for company. Be prepared to spend a whole day.”
-Minerva A.

ALLÉE & OVERLOOK

Take in the panorama of the Garden’s Lowlands and lakes from the Allée Overlook, a view that shouldn’t be missed. With its panoramic views, the Overlook provides a striking architectural counterpart to the narrow Bailey Palm Glade, which features a display of beautiful palms and provides a long, narrow view across the Garden’s landscape.

arboretum

ARBORETUM & GEIGER TROPICAL FLOWER GARDEN

The Tropical Flowering Tree Arboretum is a 12-acre display of 740 species of tropical flowering trees, shrubs and vines, collected from all tropical regions of the world. Arranged by plant family, these collections show a magnificent diversity of form, structure, texture, color and fragrance. Don’t miss the Geiger Tropical Flower Garden featuring a lovely exhibit of colorful tropical flowering plants from around the world.

Arid Succulent

ARID & SUCCULENT COLLECTIONS

Fall in love with these thick, fleshy wonders of the plant world and learn about the strikingly different species in the Arid and Succulent Garden. These plants represent many families, but share one common environmental characteristic: they grow in places that most plants can’t, with very little precipitation, extremely well-draining soil, and high temperatures.

Moose Sunken Garden

MOOS SUNKEN GARDEN

Pause and enjoy the beauty of nature in the special area of the Garden featuring a small pool and waterfall. Hand-selected as a memorial and designed in 1948, the Sunken Garden is a natural hole where the sea washed the soil from the soft limestone rock, creating a depression. Find peace in this lovely, quiet area for reflection.

Whitman Pavilion

WHITMAN TROPICAL FRUIT PAVILION

The tropics are home to the world’s most amazing fruit trees, some too delicate and cold-sensitive to grow outdoors in Miami. The Whitman Tropical Fruit Pavilion is a conservatory-like structure for these special plants, providing extra warmth, ultra-pure water, acidic soil, and the humidity of a tropical cloud forest.

AQUATIC EXHIBITS

Soak in the beauty of Fairchild’s 11 lakes and 7 pools, including the Sibley Victoria Pool, the Tropical Plant Conservatory and Rare Plant House Pools, Amphitheater pool, the Sunken Garden pool and waterfall, and more. There are also stunning water features in the Wings of the Tropics and Simons Rainforest exhibits.
