A couple weeks ago I went with a friend to walk around the Royal Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh. The gardens are stunning and a must see for any green-thumbed tourists in Edinburgh. They are also an excellent place for relaxing on a nice day in a grassy spot with an ice cream cone. I love cities that keep lots of gardens and parks. It’s great to keep some nature in a city where one can go and get in touch with some beautiful nature and forget about the bustle of the city and the invasion of tourists. A few other places like this that I have found in Edinburgh include The Meadows and Holyrood Park.
