We love Flamingo Gardens! This tropical paradise in Davie offers visitors the chance to wander through 60 acres of of amazing botanical gardens, orchards and an animal sanctuary.
Flamingo Gardens is home to over 90 species of mostly rescued Florida native bird and animals. It is a wonderful place to learn about the diverse populations, both plant and animal, that are found here in Florida and no where else in the world.
My daughter loves the half-acre free flight aviary that has over 250 wading birds in it. We went so often when she was still in a stroller that she can name many of them! Nothing is funnier than a two year old trying to say spoonbill!
I have two favorite events at Flamingo Gardens that I have written about a lot over the years. The first is the Christmas Lights event they do every year! The second is the Halloween Scarecrow Contest.
Flamingo Gardens offers many great events throughout the year, but some of my absolute favorites are coming up soon!
