A couple weeks back I found myself with a free day all to myself and Emma. And a free day for us = a new adventure. The weather was beautiful so I took that as my sign we needed to do something outdoors. I decided on a visit to Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. In Richmond, it isn't a far distance from our house, so travel time was perfect. Admission for an adult is $11 and for children 3-11 the cost is $7, children under 3 are free. There are discounts for members to the Botanical Gardens and you can also purchase yearly admission tickets for individuals or families. The price does seem a little steep but once you get into the garden you will understand why. The gardens are incredible! Plan on being here a few hours in order to see everything.
It was a great visit. Both Emma and I left happy as clams and feeling like we just discovered another Richmond treasure.
