Brookgreen Garden is a beautiful place, the setting is amazing. At certain times of the year they have outdoor concerts. There are interesting things for children and adults. The Christmas event is spectacular! Truly a must see.

This was an amazing light display. We strolled thru the gardens which were lit with an array of different colored lights, candles, plants. There was also music being played. It is a beautiful place to visit any time of the year!

This is a must see if you are in the area. You could spend days here in the gardens alone. The sculptures in the gardens just add to their beauty. All the wildlife that is there makes the whole experience even better.

Love this place. This time we took a toddler. Short visit. Nice walk. It was actually a good place to let them explore a bit. Need to go back.

Hi, I work at Brookgreen, we have had mostly very positive feedback on the exhibit. Kids love it and some big kids too! It's only here through April.

We have visited in Sept. and Oct. Both times were ideal weather, and, the gardens are planted with evergreens and non blooming seasonal plants that extend the “flowering” season. It really is unique in the fact that it’s as... More
