Without trees to generate oxygen, humans would have to retrieve it from scuba tanks and the minty breath of local supermen. Breathe deeply with today's Groupon: for $4, you get one admission to Fruit and Spice Park in Homestead (an $8.56 value).

Fruit and Spice Park sprawls across 37 acres, hosting more than 500 varieties of fruits, vegetables, herbs, and nuts. Boasting North America’s only tropical climate, the lush setting yields abundant specimens including 70 kinds of bamboo, 15 types of jackfruit trees, and edibles such as fiji longan and jaboticaba. Legs meander freely through banana groves and african baobab trees, or follow a guide during tours commencing daily at 11 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 3 p.m. to learn more about plant species and which fruit seeds bare an uncanny likeness to Abraham Lincoln’s silhouette. Throughout strolls, guests may help themselves to any of Mother Nature’s home cooking that has fallen to the ground, including mangos, dragon fruit, and papayas, or venture to the tasting table at the entryway to sample the season’s bounty. Find more substantial nibbles at The Mango Cafe, or harvest jams and aromatic teas at the gift shop.

Guests can sample fallen fruit, learn with a staff of experts that regularly conducts classes, workshops, and botanical tours year-round, visit and herb and vegetable garden, stroll through shady banana groves, and take in the majestic African baobab trees. A gift shop allows visitors to take home unique gifts and treats, and the Mango Café offers up lunch and smoothies.

It's a nice park but it didn't have enough vendors. I'm not sure if it's because we went on a Sunday morning but it would had been great if more vendors were present.
