Do you love nature but want to learn more about plants? Have you found yourself curious to identify a stunning flower you’ve never seen before? Look no further than Yelp’s collection of the best botanical gardens and conservatories.

While the urban landscape is constantly changing, the Earth’s diverse plant life remains a timeless display within many of our botanical gardens and conservatories. Botanical gardens display diverse collections of plants with hundreds, if not thousands, of species classified by their scientific names, and many gardens are also involved in scientific research. The conservatories, with their elegant glass-walled structures, are known not only for their beauty but also for providing a protected environment to protect the plant collections. With several botanical gardens containing numerous conservatories, visitors can enjoy the splendor of both indoor and outdoor spaces, fully embracing the rejuvenating spirit of spring.

Get ready to embark on a horticultural adventure as we unveil our selection of the best botanical gardens and conservatories, including an arboretum, a butterfly garden and even a rose test garden. Nestled within sprawling forests, prestigious university campuses, and even a hotel in Las Vegas, these destinations promise to enchant visitors with their dazzling offerings. While most invite you to wander on foot, there is one particularly daring place that invites you to experience its wonders from the perspective of a thrilling zipline.
