    Favorite thing: Fairchild Gardens is south of Miami near Perrine, but it has a Coral Gables address. The 83 acres gardens were established in 1938 and are among one of the world's best. There are palms, cycads, flowering trees and vines. There are also greenhouses with orchids and other tropical plants.

    Hours
    Fairchild is open daily from 9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Closed Christmas Day.

    Favorite thing: I visited in Fairchild Tropical Garden on january 2004. It was a great place. They take really good care of the plants and of the landscape. It was beautiful.
    The place is huge, and it took a while to walk around it. Staff were nice and helpful.
