Flamingo Gardens

$79


Flamingo Gardens is a 60 acre Botanical Garden and Everglades Wildlife Sanctuary located in Fort Lauderdale, (Davie) Florida, and features over 3000 species of rare & exotic, tropical, subtropical, and native plants and trees. Flamingo Gardens wildlife sanctuary is home to the largest collection of Florida native wildlife including alligators, bobcats, eagles, otters, panthers, peacock, and of course, flamingos!  A nature lover’s delight - explore and enjoy the Arboretum & Champion Trees, Butterfly & Hummingbird Gardens, Croton Garden, Florida Wildflower Garden, Ginger & Heliconia Gardens, Xeriscape Garden, Live Oak Hammock, and the Tropical Rainforest and Wetlands Area, which is accessible only by the Narrated Tram Tour. Bask in the beauty of these fragrant and exotic plantings.


We’ll experience the Gardens via the Tram Tour that takes us through the terrain to places inaccessible by foot. The centerpiece of the gardens is a natural hammock of 200 year-old Live Oaks dripping with species orchids and epiphytes. Here sits the historic Wray Home Museum, built in 1933 by Floyd L. and Jane Wray as a weekend retreat. It is the oldest residence in Broward County west of University Drive. The building was restored in 1991 to depict a typical South Florida country home of the 1930s. Mrs. Wray’s wish to preserve the core property for future generations and emphasize the flora, fauna, and history of the Florida Everglades is the core of Flamingo Gardens' mission still today.

Mission Inn, Yalaha Bakery & Mt. Dora

Yalaha Bakery is a lovely gem of a German) bakery famous for its yummy, unique baked goods, delicious breads, and cute location. If you're looking for a strong German representation, this is your place. They feature a vast array of baked goods - shortbread cookies, danishes, walnut squares, German chocolate cake.... the list goes on, not to mention all kinds of breads including Rye, Pumpernickel & Pretzel Bread.  We’re bringing a cooler to hold perishables, but the bread should do fine staying on the bus in January weather.


From Yalaha we’re off to Howey-In-The-Hills for a relaxing and luscious lunch buffet at the beautiful Mission Inn Resort and Golf club.  Golfers will appreciate viewing the rare tee to green elevations of 85 feet, towering forests, and sparkling spring-fed lakes.


After our delightful and satisfying lunch we move on to quaint Mt. Dora for free time to browse. shop or search for antiques. If you still want a bite to eat or a cocktail before heading home, the town is filled with pubs, cafes and restaurants.  All in all, a wonderful, relaxing day of fun and food!
