San Diego Botanic Gardens
The largest North American display of bamboo serves as a backdrop for plants of every kind including exotic tropicals, indigenous plants and unusual specimens that flourish in this mild coastal climate allowing for a 365-day growing season. Volunteers maintain this world-renowned, 30-acre botanical garden only 30 miles north of San Diego. A botanical library is onsite for study and research. Tours are free Saturdays at 10a, group tours are available, and a gift shop and nursery are both on the grounds.
Since there are plants from all around the world in this garden, you are certain to find something blooming any time of year.
During holiday season, the festival of lights in the gardens is a must see.
Plan at least one hour and a half or two hours if you want to see everything and make the tour really worth the entry fee.
