The Missouri Botanical Garden is one of the most beautiful gardens I have been to. A visit in the spring brings views of glorious flowers and trees in bloom, The Climatron and Temperate House were really neat with easy walking paths, tons of unique plants, waterfalls, and quiet places to sit and relax, or for photo ops. We walked around the entire gardens and loved it all, but our absolute favorite was the Japanese Garden. It was peaceful and the landscape and wildlife were stunning. There is a $14 charge for adults and worth the admission cost to visit anytime of the year.
