Are you looking for an unforgettable Valentine’s Day date combining fun activities with the beauty of nature? Consider spending the day at the enchanting Sunken Gardens in St. Petersburg. The historic site offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, transporting visitors back to a time when Florida was a tropical paradise.

Sunken Gardens is St. Pete’s oldest living museum, celebrating over 100 years of botanical beauty. It is renowned for housing some of the region’s oldest tropical plants, making it a unique treasure trove of flora. As you wander the paths, visitors will experience a living collection of over a thousand plant species, tropical plants and flowers arranged in beautifully curated gardens. Additionally, the garden is a sanctuary for various rehomed tropical birds, such as Macaws, Cockatoos and Flamingos.

For those seeking interactive experiences, Sunken Gardens does not disappoint. You can enjoy animal shows that provide educational insights into the lives of the garden’s inhabitants, walk among fluttering butterflies in the butterfly garden, and even feed the Koi fish in their peaceful ponds.

If you come to the Sunken Gardens, it is urged that you immerse yourself in its beauty while also respecting the plants and wildlife that call this place home. Guests are encouraged to stay on designated paths, avoid touching or climbing on the plants and structures, and maintain a respectful distance from the animals to preserve their space.
