    Such a beautiful place, definitely worth a visit! If you're local, it pays to get a membership. Don't miss the lights around Christmas time. :-)

    The holiday light show at night is pretty awesome. 3d glasses a nice touch but not really needed.

    Stop by the welcome center to see if the Koi fish have been fed! If they haven't, you can feed them.

    Beautiful! We attended a wedding here, very scenic. And I like how Selby pays homage to different cultures. Also, check out the memory bricks in the butterfly garden.

    Volunteers that work here are so delightful. Very helpful & informative. Ladies at the mansion took the time to personally show us around. Beautiful. Best way to spend my 36th birthday. Going back!

    The koi pond at Marie Selby gardens is spectacular. The gardens are quiet and relaxing. Be sure to check out the tea shop, and don't forget the mosquito repellant!

    If you still have a student ID, this would be the time to use it. You'll save bookoo $ on your admission. The gardens are well worth a visit, but a bit pricey without the discount.

    Don't forget to buy fish food at the front desk - the Koi are like piranhas! :)
