Everyone knows about the theme parks - but did you know you can find more than 50 acres of beautiful botanic gardens near the centre of Orlando? Visit the Harry P. Leu Gardens and you'll be able to enjoy over 8,000 plant species in a perfectly maintained garden. Enter under the giant shady oak trees and find acclaimed collections of flowers, a working vegetable garden and a butterfly garden. The plot is named after a wealthy businessman and horticultural enthusiast who set it up in 1936. Today you can tour Harry Leu's family home at the centre of the estate and experience a rare glimpse of Orlando history.
