Birmingham Botanical Gardens
Birmingham's warm climate ensures that something is always blooming at the Botanical Gardens. Enjoy spring azaleas, summer roses, fall leaves and winter camellias as you tour the extensive grounds. Or, step inside the Southeast's largest clear-span glass greenhouse to enjoy orchids and other tropicals. Visit the Japanese Tea House and Garden and the Southern Living Garden, plus vegetable, fern, iris and other special gardens. Other attractions include the Gatehouse Gift Shop, a cafe and a library. Lectures, demonstrations, concerts and other events occur almost daily; inquire for a schedule. Admission is free. All paths are wheelchair and stroller-accessible.
I once spent 5 hours scouring the gardens during the "Itty Bitty Magic City Scavenger Hunt". My boyfriend and I found every single item and won a fabulous prize. Very nice place to go on a date, particularly with someone that you are already close to. I like to go on one of the first really warm days of spring.
This was a very serene place. And the gardens are actually quite pretty. In some areas even beautiful. It's not the best in the world but it'll do because it's free! If you complain even one bit, just remind yourself, it's free!! What I didn't like is the maintanance. Many flowers/roses were dead and I went in mid-summer. You will be doing a lot of walking here too so dress comfortably. Here's a neat tip: inside the Garden Center building, head towards the back of the building (towards the restrooms). Once you see the restrooms (on your left), take about 10 steps more and look to your right. A waterfall!! Which you can only access through here! Look closely . . oh my goodness, turtles in the waterfall! Just one more tip though . . have someone stay inside the building to open the door for you. They lock it sometimes! Overall I still think this is a must-see event in Birmingham.
