By Andrew Belonsky

Ten of our favorite places to get back to nature near South Beach.

A quick car ride south of Miami you'll come across the verdant Fairchild Botanical Gardens.

First opened in 1938, this pay-to-play attraction is worth the price of admission: an astounding aboretum homes 700 species of tropical flowering trees, more than 4,000 exotic palms are spread out throughout the property and thousands of butterflies flutter through their own conservatory.

You're not going to find a place like this anywhere else, so take advantage of it.
