The Destination Immersion Blog recently named NTBG’s Kampong Garden as one of the top hidden gems in Miami. Read a snippet of the article below and see the feature article on the Destination Immersion Blog.
The Kampong is a spectacular botanical garden to say the least. Situated in Coconut Grove, The Kampong is part of the not-for-profit National Tropical Botanic Garden institution and was established by the noted horticulturist Dr David Fairchild.
Director of The Kampong, Craig Morell, spoke to us about the special nature of the attraction: “The Kampong of the National Tropical Botanical Garden is a hidden garden gem in Miami, harkening to an era long gone. The home of famed plant explorer Dr David Fairchild, the property dates back over 150 years. Dr Fairchild introduced many early varieties of the tropical fruits, grains and spices we eat today, as he travelled the world to find better food to feed America. His elegant home sits on the highest natural stone ridge in the county and overlooks Biscayne Bay and Key Biscayne. There is a scenic walk right down to the bayfront.
