Founded in 1927, Flamingo Gardens pays homage to Florida’s native jungle ecosystem with more than 3,000 plant and flower species. The vast botanical garden contains rare tropical plants along with pristine sections of native Florida wilderness, an animal rehabilitation center, aviary, and onsite museum.

See black bears, panthers, bobcats, and gators at the Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary, visit the free-flight aviary, and stop by the onsite Wray Home Museum, which illustrates how the property progressed from a simple garden to the major attraction it is today.
