Central Gardens offers a delightful look at a wide variety of architectural styles, ranging from Colonial Revival to Tudor, American Craftsman to Mediterranean Revival. Visitors flock to explore the fascinating homes and buildings in the area, particularly in September, during the neighborhood’s renowned Central Gardens Home and Garden Tour, which draws thousands of visitors.

The community lives up to its name as the home of Central Gardens arboretum, as well, where many of the 90 different species of trees are over 80 years old. Tour the tree-lined architectural beauty of the area and then settle in for a snack at one of the neighborhood’s quiet cafes.
