South Florida is known for having diverse plant life. From the marshes of the Everglades to its iconic palm trees, we have a little bit of everything. If you want to learn more about Florida’s beautiful plants, we at Carl’s Van Rentals suggest that you spend some time at Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach.
Mounts Botanical Garden is Palm Beach County’s longest established and largest public garden. You can see both tropical and subtropical plants—some that are native to Florida and others from around the world. Relax amongst exotic trees, palms, or fruit trees. See beautiful winged creatures up close in the butterfly garden. In addition to its plant life, Mounts Botanical Garden also features regular events and educational programming. Check out the Mounts Botanical Garden website for event info.
The gardens are open Monday through Saturday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sundays from noon to 4 p.m.—except for county-observed holidays. All children must be with an adult at all times, and you may want to bring sunscreen and bug spray to protect yourself against the sun’s rays and the insects that frequent the gardens. Admission costs $5 a person, except for garden events that usually at a higher rate.
Mounts Botanical Garden is located near Palm Beach International Airport, off Military Trail in West Palm Beach, FL. If you’re visiting the area, you can book a van rental from us at Carl’s Van Rentals in West Palm Beach. We have minivan rentals, passenger van rentals, and other rental vehicles that fit your needs and your budget.
