The Botanic Gardens is a must for any one! It's a brilliantly curated landscape with different gardens based off a variety of landscapes and terrains. Their Aquatic Garden & Englished Walled garden are my personal favorites. Whether you're looking to see some stellar plant varieties or just want to stroll in nature, this is the place to go!
If you're going to the North Shore, you should definitely stop at the Botanic Garden. There's a room full of friggin' butterflies and more plants than you ever knew existed. If you want to get a quick escape from the city and the smog and pollution that come with it, the Botanic Garden is a great choice.
