"US Botanic Garden" U.S. Botanic Garden Tip by soccergrrl
U.S. Botanic Garden, Washington D.C.: 28 reviews and 51 photos
Recently renovated, the Botanic Garden is a "living plant museum." There are several different environments represented, including jungle, desert, and endangered. This is truly a spectacular place to spend time, and the controlled environment can be a respite from unpleasant outside weather. If you visited in the past and remember a somewhat dingy and dated atmosphere with opaque windows and dim light, you are in for a very pleasant surprise. The renovations have breathed new life into this vibrant attraction.
There are also benches throughout the Botanic Gardens; if you are looking for a place to rest your weary tourist feet, it's hard to beat this!
See my travelogue, "A Botanical Tour" for a sampling.
