One of the oldest and maybe most known botanical gardens that have been in operation since their opening, is the Missouri Botanical Gardens just in the center of St. Louis.

The Gardens, with its 79acre territory has a lot to offer, there is also a small tram for those with walking difficulty or for a short tour before exploration of its sections. The Japanese Garden is maybe the most beautiful part of the area, though that depends on taste, I admit. It is a highly recommendable place to visit!

Address:
4344 Shaw Blvd, St Louis, MO 63110, USA

Price:
Adults $8, kids free.

Opening Hours:
9am-5pm daily.
