Gravel path through bamboo forests, ponds with alligators, and beautiful flowers. There's even a statue of Buddha that was imported from Asia. Bird City is amazing when the time of the year is right. You can take a tour of the Tabasco plant, taste different foods in the country store (I suggest the jalapeno ice cream), and eat at the restaurant.

Great drive through the gardens with lots of wildlife. Love the Chinese garden with the 900+ year old Buddha statue inside the temple. Don’t forget about the Tabasco Factory tours right next door to the gardens.

I love this place. My wife and I make it a point to visit at least once a year.
