About these ratings

Tallahassee is definitely a place to stop and smell the flowers. Previous travelers recommend the Alfred B. Maclay Gardens State Park. This ornamental garden nurtures azaleas and camellias particularly, but you'll also find magnolia, jasmine, gardenia and ginger in bloom. And they're all picturesquely ensconced among two nature trails, bike paths, a reflecting pool and several picnic pavilions.

A TripAdvisor user says, "This is the kind of place where you want to bring a book/sketch pad or camera and just stay for hours to enjoy the landscape and birds or sit next to the lake at the pavilion." However, there is one potential snag: There are two separate entry fees for this state park. One for the actual park and then a separate one to enter the gardens.

The state park is open daily from 8 a.m. to sundown. The gardens are open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can enter the park for $2 on foot, $4 in a single occupant vehicle and $6 if you're driving with one passenger or more. It costs between $3 and $6 to enter the garden, price varying depending on age. Visit the official website for further information.
