Area is very well laid-out with lots of variety in the gardens and sculptures. Have several conveniently located short-order restaurants and a picnic area.

Peaceful, quiet, beautiful. Lots to see if you like sculptures and wildlife. We visit this place just about every time we come to Murrells Inlet or other places on the Strand.

In an area where the beach normally rules, Brookgreen Gardens is a breath of fresh air. It was easy to spend several hours there just wandering and relaxing. They visitor's center had a display that told what flowers were in bloom so you could seek them out. The gift shop was wonderful with unique gift items. There are even activities... More

Whether it is azaleas, tulips and and daffodils in the spring, butterflies,otters and live oak alley in the summer. Whether it is a leisurely lunch or dinner or a concert with wine under the stars- Brookgreen has it all. Nature at it's finest in the low-country of South Carolina. Fall with its colors and cooler weather give the visitors a... More

Brookgreen Gardens is on a historic site and covers hundreds of acres with walking trails, beautiful "Low Country" settings, and hundreds of specimen plants. It is renowned for it's collection of outdoor sculptures, the largest in the US. We bought a multi-day pass. It's difficult to see everything in one day!

There is so much to see at brookgreen. The zoo, the beautiful statues and flowers. We took a boat tour very great. Very maintained. A very small price to pay for such a really big place. We go back as much as we can.

This is a nice attraction but it somewhat overpriced. You pay for the whole week but every attraction you had to pay extra for with the exception of the walk thru zoo. I felt this was a pain considering we had already paid $15 each to get in. They should have one fee for everything instead of nickel and diming... More
