McKee Botanical Garden from now on resembles to colorful flowers and beautiful water lilies!! Also, the smells just relax you, without mentioning the views of these beautiful scenery.

In just 3 hours, we walked the Gardens and it was very relaxing for us all.

The water element of the ponds is just great and moisturizes the place keeping the plants hydrated.
Great for an afternoon walk and for all ages!

Went to McKee Botanical Gardens on St Patrick's Day. We felt like we were in Jurassic Park with a little of the Vikings on the side. It was an amazing and wonderful place. They even have dinosaurs that move and roar! They have a large climbing area for the kids deep in the "jungle"! It was great. There are ponds and so many flowers and beautiful lush landscape all throughout. The trees are magnificent! We wondered for hours and just loved taking pics and seeing all the beautiful scenery. There are several tiki huts throughout and one large Tiki House. Yes, do go! You will love it. Take bug spray. We sprayed before walking through and were totally fine. They have a gift shop, library and cafe! All the essentials! I can't say enough about this great place!!!

We love exploring the pathways of regal palms, and lazing by the tranquil streams of waterlilies. This is an amazing botanical garden, and we think a trip here is one of the best things to do in Vero Beach!

Mckee Botanical Garden was one of my favorite stops on my Vero Beach trip in summer of 2014. Beautiful collection, friendly and knowledgeable staff, and not crowded at all. We got tons of great photos, and I would love to go back.
