Best Botanical Gardens

Historical southern horticulture, as well as exotic blooms and other wildlife, can be found in many places throughout Charlotte. In the city of Charlotte itself, rose gardens, bird sanctuaries and woodland trails, provide a peaceful oasis from the busy, noisy city life of a growing metropolis.
