It's the best Botanical garden I've ever visited. The best time to go is in winter, as you can spend the whole day walking without sweating. Good for hiking trip, family trip or even solo. Better to bring you lunch and bottles of water

We went today and didn't see everything but I'm sure they'll like the Cacti Garden and the tower. And there's probably much more to see.
