Deep down inside, we all just want to get back to the garden — and Cleveland Botanical Garden is the perfect retreat. The variety of outdoor gardens is daunting. Even before entering the building you are assaulted with billowing grasses, carpets of flowers and perfectly situated ornamental trees featured in the Campsey Stauffer Gateway Garden.
Some other outdoor gardens you cannot miss include the Hershey Children’s Garden with treehouse, fish-stocked pond, interactive fountain, hedge maze and playful seasonal projects for kid visitors to get their hands dirty. Don’t miss the elegant Japanese Garden, the lush rainforest of Costa Rica and the spiny desert of Madagascar. CBG is truly an urban getaway.
