While in Miami on business this holiday season, make your way to the first-ever NightGarden. Illuminating Miami’s Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden by night, guests enjoy vibrant light displays; fun mazes; innovative technology, including special effects; sculptures; and holograms — to name a few.
On display Nov. 23–Jan. 6, 2019, the uniquely beautiful NightGarden adds a new nightlife attraction for guests seeking entertainment, photo ops, local artisans and incredible cuisine.
Ideal for all ages, locals and tourists, the new NightGarden is a great place to visit on your own, with clients or family, depending on the occasion. Spanning 23 acres of Fairchild’s vast terrain, the limited-time event brings a bit of whimsy to the botanic garden. Expect the young-at-heart to be racing through neon mazes, posing by the growing dandelion field, enjoying some friendly competition during scavenger hunts and a variety of creative surprises.
Knowing the Fairchild’s reputation for local events and impressive showcases, guests can easily expect an impressive lineup of vendors, offering Miami-based cuisine and cocktails. The non-profit organization, established in 1938, is now in its 80th year and is no novice to producing an exciting showcase.
The full lineup of eateries will be announced Nov. 1, but guests heading to the area should purchase tickets in advance. NightGarden will be open seven nights a week, 6–10 p.m., during the week and until 11 p.m., weekends. Presale tickets to be available for $20–28.

The excess perishable food from the various properties was donated to 30 local food banks, schools and community organizations in the communities where Vail Resorts employees live, work and play. Fruit, vegetables, cheese, juice, granola bars and more went to mountain communities from Colorado and Vermont to British Columbia.
The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
