Top Ten North American Gardens Worth Traveling For, Garden Tourism Conference, Part IV

Vallarta Botanical Gardens in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Each year, in the spirit of highlighting North America’s most dynamic garden experiences and garden tourism’s potential, the International Garden Tourism Network's North American Conference determines a list of the Top Ten North American Gardens Worth Traveling For. This year was no exception. Tourism is the world’s fourth largest industry – and garden tourism is a significant part of it.
The awards are presented to gardens that have distinguished themselves in the development and promotion of the garden experience as a tourism attraction. To view past winners, visit www.gardentourismconference.com and click on the ‘media’ tab.
 I've been to only two of these gardens. How many have you been to?
