San Diego Botanic GardenThe San Diego Botanic Garden has been acknowledged as a recipient of a “Top 10 North American Gardens Worth Traveling For” Garden Tourism Award. The garden was placed ninth among the list of gardens from around the world by the Canadian Garden Council and the American Public Gardens Association. The garden was the only one on the list from California.

 
Garden tourism occupies a big role in tourism, which is the fourth largest industry in the world, according to a press release by the Garden Tourism Awards.

 

To quote Dr. Richard Benfield, author of “Garden Tourism,” and chair of the International Garden Tourism Network, “For example, more people visit gardens in the United States than go to Disneyland and Disney World combined, and more than visit Las Vegas annually, making Garden Tourism one of the largest sectors in the tourism market.”
