"Take a stroll and be amazed" Desert Botanical Garden Tip by cherylrf

Desert Botanical Garden, Phoenix: 24 reviews and 63 photos

We visited the Botanical garden in December and what a treat that was. We took a tour that lasted about an hour and was very informative. Our tour guide then told us about another tour that we could go on that talked all about the edible plants and uses of the desert plants. At the end of the tour we were able to taste the items that were talked about during the tour. Being from the east coast and really not knowing much about the desert enviornment it was a really exciting end to the tour. Give yourself a few hours in this garden!
Very much worth the admission charge.
