The 90-year-old botanical gardens is one of the oldest animal sanctuaries in the region and has been continually dedicated to preserving aviary species, butterflies and the state’s unofficial mascot, the flamingo. Observe native species such as alligators and eagles in a special section dedicated to the living creatures of the Everglades. There’s also an area sectioned off for wading birds and another for birds of prey, featuring a large collection of raptors. With plenty of gardens to explore, it’s best to hop on one of the trams to get the lay of the land.
