Missouri Botanical Garden - St. Louis

From its summer music fest to its holiday flower and train shows, the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis hosts many annual events. But the garden easily stands on its own, with 79 acres of beautiful displays that include a 14-acre Japanese garden, the garden founder Henry Shaw's original 1850 estate home, and one of the world's largest collections of rare and endangered orchids.
