While in Palm Springs, I was burning up my Yelp app trying to find interesting places to visit and I stumbled across a review for the Moorten Botanical Garden. Instantly, I knew we had to visit. We checked out the garden after a leisurely breakfast at Koffi (a blueberry muffin for me, a cinnamon roll for Grant), it was our last stop before we had to hit the road back home. Anyway, I think it was like $3 each to get in and man was it worth it!
The gardens were established around the late '30s and has varieties of cacti from all over the world. Besides cacti, there's also old mining equipment scattered around the grounds and even some piles of mineral and crystal specimens. I'd say our favorite part was, hands down, the rickety metal green house that shelters the rare varieties of cacti in the collection. It was kind of overwhelming to take in and absorb all of the different species (and I'm sure there were tons that I missed) but I suppose that just means we'll have to go back? If you're into cacti/ succulents (and let's be honest, who isn't these days), it's a definite must see!
