Zilker Botanical Garden

ADD TO MY TRIP

natural

The folks in Austin take their natural parks seriously and this is one of the better botanical gardens I've seen in the US. They've got a rose garden, an oriental garden, herbs and fragrant plants, cactuses. The Butterfly trail is filled with plants that attract those flying beasties.
If you're planning a visit check the website, which has a map and offers monthly photos of flowering plants and their identification so you'll know what to look for.
Open dawn to dusk.
