Description: SOUTH BEACH. These beautiful, peaceful gardens offer a tranquil break from glitzy South Beach. Few people know about this undiscovered gem, which features 4.5 acres of gardens cloistered from the rest of the city ­ even though the convention center is just across the street.

This is one of only eight properties in the US owned by the National Tropical Botanical Gardens, and it offers a magnificent array of tropical fruit trees and flowering trees that are not found anywhere else. The facility, located on the site of the former home of plant researcher David Fairchild, also hosts current plant researchers, so plenty of information is provided about the wildlife that grows there.
