Every few months the San Diego Botanic Gardens (in Encinitas) hosts a new exhibit in the Dickinson Family Education Conservatory. It is currently housing bromeliads- tropical, brightly colored flowering plants, native to the Americas.
We spent two and a half hours at the San Diego Botanic Gardens, but remained in one small area. If you are a toddler, the Hamilton’s Children Garden has everything you could possibly need. Giant chairs, a treehouse, chalkboards, a stream, musical instruments, giant balsa wood blocks… its sensory play overload.
