Should you visit Freeport, this is the one don't miss stop. The garden blazes with color. An easygoing walk reveals exotic tropical plants at every turn. A beautiful, peaceful place to contemplate the wonders of a perfectly landscaped garden.

Great tour with Katrina walking us around the groves and giving us the history! Places to get some souvenirs and a great place to stop for food/drinks
