The Botanical Gardens are located at 2000 Convention Center Drive, in Miami Beach, between the Convention Center and the Holocaust Memorial. At night, the main entrance at 19th & Convention Center Dr. and the one by the small parking lot on 19th will be open. There is plentiful parking around the Garden and at several nearby parking facilities, including 18th and Meridian.


Inside the Garden, the event will be held at the Butterfly Room, across the atrium from the Banyan Room, and signs will help guide you.

About ben

Ben Batchelder has traveled some of the world's most remote roads. Nothing in his background, from a degree in Visual & Environmental Studies at Harvard to an MBA from Wharton, adequately prepared him for the experiences. Yet he persists, for through such journeys life unfolds. Having published four books that map the inner and exterior geographies of meaningful travel, he is a mountain man in Minas Gerais, Brazil who comes down to the sea at Miami Beach, Florida. His second travel yarn, To Belém & Back, received a starred review from Publishers Weekly. For more, visit
