Morikami Japanese Garden, Delray Beach, Florida
The gardens at the Morikami Japanese Garden and Museum were definitely the highlight of my trip to Florida. It's an absolutely gorgeously done garden, with a progression of well labelled styles. We didn't explore the main museum building (other than their awesome gift shop), but the Yamato-san (the original museum building) has a great exhibit called Japan Through the Eyes of a Child that was a ton of fun to go through.
There was also bonsai, and rock gardens, and carp, and it was just a lovely place to wander through. I blame it almost entirely for the intense garden itch I am now unable to do anything with since returning to the arctic tundra of Maine.
