The garden was named after David Fairchild, whose lifelong passion was one of plant exploration, traveling all over the world searching for any and all plants which could be used for the benefit of mankind. He tracked down special herbs and other horticultural wonders of the time. His knowledge and travels brought many rare varieties of trees and tropical plants to America. Some, including mangos, dates and bamboo, which had not been heard of in this part of the world before.
Yes, this is a very special place in Miami, one of the largest botanical gardens of it’s kind in America. Covering 83 acres, it is a vast rainforest right in the middle of suburban sprawl, one of the highlights of our visit in Miami.
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden is located at 10901 Old Cutler Road, Coral Gables, FL 33156.
