A beautiful place to spend an afternoon, then finish the day with dinner on Arthur Avenue. You can't go wrong

The "Aloha Night" musical performances were wonderful! I wish the seats could have been under a tent, instead of out in the open air while it was raining.

If you are into gardens, landscaping, botany etc. this makes for a gorgeous venue. It is somewhat expensive. We only went because a famous glass blowing exhibit was there that week or month.

We went with family during late September not expecting much as very few things would be in bloom. Boy were we wrong. The place is kept spotless (to Disney standards). The grounds are well marked and the signage is clear. Our most favorite attraction? The...More

I honestly can’t tell you how crowded it is on a Saturday/weekend. I usually go during the week, at those times it’s not crowded at all.
