It might be a bit of a cliché, but there are few things more romantic than walking hand in hand with your loved one through a beautiful garden. While the Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden might not have a stereotypical rose garden, it contains a much more exciting variety of plants and exhibits that make it a great place for a day date. As soon as you arrive, it is best to grab a seat on the next tram tour. Lasting about an hour, these tours are run by the garden’s very knowledgeable volunteer guides and provide an excellent overview of the grounds. Stroll through the gardens of exotic fruit trees and lush vines as you and date marvel at how beautiful it all is. Look out for the hummingbirds, which are very common throughout the gardens. Try to arrive early to avoid the heat and humidity that occurs in the afternoon. But if you arrive later, the late afternoon is the best time to view the butterflies in the Butterfly Garden. Before you leave make sure to visit the Wishing Grove, which is an arbor where you can write down a wish on a tag and then hang it from a vine. After this great day, you both will be wishing to come back very soon.
