America's Top Free Attractions: Birmingham Botanical Gardens

Birmingham Botanical Gardens, AL

Some botanical gardens charge upwards of $20 per person. But in Birmingham, you’re truly free to roam among more than 12,000 different plants, more than 25 themed gardens, and more than 30 outdoor sculptures spanning 67.5 acres. A traditional Japanese teahouse, free science activities for children, and a vegetable garden where visitors can learn how to cultivate a greener thumb round out a visit. There’s even the Enabling Garden, which is wheelchair-accessible, with raised planting beds so there’s no need to bend or stoop.
