Have you ever found yourself on a long weekend or a holiday wanting
to do something fun and out-of-the ordinary? Dinner and a movie get
old pretty quick. There is something you can do that is fun and a break from the "norm."
Florida has a wealth of natural resources closer than
you may think. There are Public Gardens all across
the state. I know what you are thinking; "a garden?, who would want
to go nancying around in one of those all day?" Public gardens can be exciting,
fun, educational and of course relaxing. What better way to forget
about classes, bills, deadlines or ex-boy/girl friends. Simply strolling
around taking in all the sights, sounds and smells will reduce your
stress level and make happier in general.
I am not here to offer psychological services, I am, however, going to tell
you about some of the world class gardens across the state of Florida.
Within one hour from anywhere in the state you can be at a Public Garden.
Did you know there is a large Japanese garden as well as a rainforest.
at gardens in Florida? Each garden possess some feature that is
unique and special. The information provided on this site is
mearly a sample of what is to come at these gardens, there is much
that can only be discovered by exploring the gardens for yourself.
One of the best features of any garden is the Festivals,
plant sales and Celebrations that are held year-round. These are the days
that the gardens are opened up to the public for events that are simply about
having fun in the garden. They can be large and elaborate or small
and intimate, but every garden features such an event.
So I ask you again; have you ever wanted to do something
different with a weekend or a day off? I hope after you poke around this site
your answer will be different.
