If you read my notation regarding the 'Huntington State Park', across the street, you'll readily understand this is the brain child and show case for Anna, Archer's wife. Her sculptures adorn this palatial canvas. Here there is a plethora of things which were initially fostered behind the walls of the Huntington's estate. Nevertheless, with the wealth he inherited, (New Port... More

Wow! Is a understatement. Words can never explain the beauty nor the experience of the gardens at night. Worth the time and trip to Brook Green Gardens. It is more than a thousands of lights, music and art, sculptures. It's an experience under under the night skies walking past trees hundreds of years old. Truly a experience for all to... More

Simply breathtaking. I definitely plan to go back quite a few more times. A little crowded, but it's no wonder, how could anyone resist such a wonderful sight. Candles, Christmas lights and sculptures as far as the eye can see.

Winter camellias make a beautiful backdrop to statues. Great Trekky tour. Easy walking. Zoo is good too. So glad I went. Ticket is good for 7 days!!!!! If you purchase a Trekky tour, you get a discount on gift shop purchases.

These gardens have a zoo, a butterfly house, and a narrated walking tour of the slave quarters. We also went on a pontoon boat trip around the gardens. Even saw alligators.

My favorite place in the world. I have been going to the garden for more than 50 years. One of the reasons we chose Myrtle Beach for a winter home is because I would be close to the garden. I have seen many changes over the years, and I have never been disappointed when I visit the garden.

Really enjoyed the peaceful and beautiful walks of the Brookgreen Gardens. The kids really enjoyed their play area and it also included a boat ride. It was truly amazing and we had so much fun. A must see.
