Miami Beach residents who love food trucks have had to trek to the mainland for their favorite delights, with a few exceptions. This Saturday, Beach residents can rejoice because food trucks will take over Miami Beach Botanical Garden from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the first Miami Beach Truck Stop.
Purchase treats from the participating food trucks and enjoy a stroll through the garden. Orchids, plants, books, and jewelry will also be for sale.
The garden is also hosting the tenth-anniversary tour of Miami Beach gardens, where you can visit six private residential gardens and snoop behind the gates of waterfront estates and mansions. Tour tickets cost $25 in advance, $30 at the gate. Admission to the botanical garden and truck stop is free. 2000 Convention Center Dr., Miami Beach; 305-673-7256
