Best Botanical Gardens in the US – Thrillist
While our country has some awe-inspiring national parks, for the majority of people who dwell in cities, getting there isn’t always easy. Cherry blossom season across the country is beautiful, but not everyone can make it in time to catch the blooms. And, sure, there are a wealth of great city parks built specifically to deliver us from chaos—but should a cloudless, sunny day dare rear its beautiful head, chaos in the form of overzealous picnickers is sure to follow.
For a real oasis, a slice of private forest amid the urban jungle, and time to reconnect with nature after too many days spent staring at screens, find your way to one of America’s best botanical gardens—one or two of which may sit right in your backyard.
