There's not too much to see on Stock Island. About the only things I know of on the island are businesses, a marina, some restaurants, Key West area's one golf course, some dive shops and the animal rescue shelter. So if there is a Must See on Stock Island, this would be it.

This is advertised as the 'only frost-free tropical moist forest garden in the continental' US. Their goal is to eliminate the non-native invasive plants and retain the local indigenous plants.

Open every day except Wednesday. Closed in September.

Suggested donations $4.00, children free
Senior citizens and locals with ID $2.00.

Address: 5210 College Rd
Directions: Turn at the right at the College Rd. light.
