The most beautiful gardens, but maybe also catch a live music performance or festival in the outdoor amphitheatre right in the middle of it all! The food is quite good too, and they have an app that will help you identify plants if they are not marked. Lots of volunteers digging in the dirt that can help you with questions. Amazing art integrated with the gardens too!
