South Coast Botanic Garden
This 87-acre Botanic Garden has more than 2,500 different species of plants.
Popular features include the Bohannon Rose Garden, Living Wall, Desert Garden, Japanese Garden and koi pond, 10 meadows, and more. Kids will enjoy a visit to their Children’s Garden, developed around nursery rhymes with plants to match the stories.
Plus, now through the end of July you can visit their all-new immersive butterfly experience, SOAR: Tropical Butterflies. The exhibit features a brand new pavilion where guests can have upclose encounters with more than 40 tropical butterfly species, an emergence chamber with pupae, and a newly-planted garden area where you can see every stage of a butterfly’s life cycle. The Garden will also be providing educational opportunities on select dates. Timed-ticket reservations are required.
