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.

Singapore Forges Ahead with Investment in Bold Innovations

For all its cosmopolitan trappings, Singapore remains, at heart, a tropical island. The city planners determinedly preserved gennery and the high groves of concrete and glass, and for a complete escape from urban bustle there still remain patches of the jungle and mangroves that covered the island when Sir Stamford Raffles first established a trading outpost here in 1819.

Discover the Joys of Small-Ship Sailing

In this era of 6,500-passenger mega-ships, any cruise vessel conveying fewer than a thousand voyagers is considered a small ship, including high-end luxury liners, deluxe expedition ships and the world’s riverboats. The focus on many small ships is the destination rather than the conveyance, the expert chat rather than the Broadway show, the watersport rather than the casino, the scenery and culture rather than the full-service spa and specialty restaurant. Passengers make a travel style choice, forgoing the options and pleasures of a resort-sized vessel for the deeper, more immersive experience of a yacht-scaled ship.
