    Quail Botanical Gardens was so much fun to visit. I am a nature lover and this is a great place to experience it. There was so much variety from fruit orchards, a rose garden, and different habitats: desert. tropical, forest-like, and so-forth. I was lucky and was let in for free. Also great for children and a nice place to picnic or relax by the running water.

    A lovely botanic garden in Encinitas. The upkeep of the gardens is a little less rigorous than in others I've visited and some areas seemed a little bit lacking to me, but other areas are wonderful. They have a great collection of succulents that are displayed very nicely as well as some beautiful Asian gardens.

    Just a few minutes drive up on Encinitas Blvd, the San Diego (Formerly Quail) Botanical Gardens. It features, waterfalls, amazing flora and spectacular walking paths.

    The San Diego Botanic Gardens are a lovely compilation of four miles of trails winding through over 12 different gardens across 37 acres. The gardens are home to a diverse collection of plants from around the world including Australia, Africa, and South America. Enjoy a relaxed afternoon roaming the many serene gardens including rare bamboo groves (the largest in the nation), desert gardens, tropical gardens and herb gardens. The Botanic Gardens also host numerous weekly and monthly events well worth checking out, including a Chocolate Festival in May and a Gala in the Garden in September.

    The one down side is that the gardens are located in Encinitas which is about 30 minutes north of San Diego, so it's a bit out of the way especially if you are visiting for a short time-period. Also, the admission price is a bit steep. Tickets are $12 to enter the gardens, and then it costs an additional $2 for parking. If you live nearby it's a great idea to become a member so you can visit as much as you like. However, for those of you visiting San Diego a one-time visit may not be worth it. That's for you to decide. There's not doubt that they are beautiful gardens flourishing with plant and animal life!

    The Quail Botanical Gardens has one of the best interactive children's playgrounds in all of San Diego. The Gardens offer a wonderful experience to wonder through lush botanicals, which is a photographers and green thumbs dream! The children's area has activities, play structures and learning opportunities for children of all ages. I highly recommend this as a family experience.

    Terrific day trip, tons to see, and a huge children's' garden. The overlook and waterfall are lovely. Great art everywhere. Brought a lunch and enjoyed the view in the walled garden, we could sit in the artificial turf and not get wet!
