    Most definitely a 5* garden - so much to see - and a beautiful landscape, just a few miles south of Miami. Fairchild has the largest collection of palm trees in the world; also cycads bromeliads, a huge show of tropical and sub-tropical plants.
    Make sure you allow at least a day to see everything on offer!!
