Stroll in the shade of the serene J.R. O'Neal Botanic Gardens and observe the lush tropical plants and exotic animals that live here. Terrapins reside in pools and lizards scurry though the plants, while many colorful fruits hang overhead. Located just a short walk from the port, and not exceedingly large, you’ll manage to see a diverse amount of flora and fauna without taking up the whole day. Be sure to have a peek in the gift shop before you leave. Plan to visit J.R.
