  • Had my wedding here in June.... St. Croix is such a beautiful place. The mainland is where we live, but V.I. is still Home. Botanical Gardens was accommodating and beautiful for the ceremony and reception. I wanted a vintage modern theme and we nailed it. We were able to bring our own caterer and vendors which works for those who prefer a certain cuisine. I would definitely recommend this venue for your event if you want an open space with a bit of vintage flair. You can make it your own there. The only reason I give it four stars is because we did have to manicure the lawn where our ceremony was being held which should have been taken care of prior to, other than that. Our day was absolutely perfect.
  • Nice Botanical Gardens with plenty of walkways and a few assorted buildings - they often have art fairs, food fairs and such which I highly recommend. Check out their little shop for some unique gifts.
  • Christmas is the very day it should be open. They could rent space and host large scale events on that day, and make 3 quarters of what they would entire year, nearly doubling their capital/profits for the fiscal year. Earning enough is not enough when you are running a business.
  • Excellent historical place, we did the "longer" tour but it didn't seem any harder. Loved learning about the history there, and they had some fruit on the trees and let us pick some! Starfruit off the tree was delicious.
  • Very nice place to visit and a great place to take photos.
