Brookgreen was a wonderful experience but beware of the traffic. Basically, there's one way from Myrtle Beach and one way back. That's Rt. 17. As much as we ( my wife and I) loved Brookgreen, if I knew how bad the traffic would be and I had another alternative, I would've taken a pass on it. That aside, it truly... More

Great day at Brookgreen garden.... After recently being at Disney, I purchased a Groupon ticket expecting to find topiary statues!!!! (should have done a little more research!) WOW was I surprised and thrilled to find life, and over life size statues of bronze, granite and aluminum, as we walk through the beautiful gardens of tulips, azaleas, poppies, and all the... More

Wonderful, beautiful, creative, interesting and a must see! As a visitor to the area, I bought a 2-for -1 admission on Groupon and almost feel guilty we didn't pay full price to get in. I wasn't sure what to expect, just figured it was a nice garden. WRONG! Oh, so wrong. It is beautifully manicured gardens, beautiful century+ old trees,... More

It was breathtaking, Loved the scenery, enjoyed the walk, beautiful day, it did take us a total of 7 hours to complete all of it, which we split up into 2 days, It was too much for 1 day, especially with a 5 year old. The only disappointment was the Labyrinth, It was just a maze on the ground, without... More

Every visit as I am a Family membership holder, is a special experience. Special events are wonderful and first class. I occasionally take my clients for lunch to add credibility of location location location

This is a beautiful garden. We spent the afternoon/evening there. The children (11 and 6) were given a booklet with questions they had to answer which kept them focused and busy the whole time. The sculptures and gardens are magnificent, the only complaint the 6 year old was too many statues in the nude! So funny! The Allee of Oaks... More

Simply outstanding is the best description. There is a very organized arrival. It is a good idea to watch the introductory film. There is a wide expanse to explore walking. Beautiful statues are well placed throughout the property. In the spring, the colors are just spectacular. There are many birds and squirrels who are quite at home, Numerous fountains add... More

Brookgreen Gardens near Myrtle Beach SC is must to see, especially this time of year! The azaleas are blooming, tulips are up and what a show they put on! The grounds are full of sculptures by many artists, Anna Huntington being the major artist! While you are visiting, take a quick trip across the street and see Atalaya Castle, where... More

Spent an afternoon at Brookgreen but won't be back. Seemed overpriced for just a self-guided walking tour of the grounds. Nicely landscaped, beautiful old Spanish moss covered oaks, World class sculpture. Seems everyone working there is a volunteer. Didn't really get much sense of the history of the area, seems more focused on the Huntington sculptures collection. The Brookgreen Gardens... More

Brookgreen Gardens is one of our favorite attractions around Myrtle Beach. We've become members so that it's easy to go very frequently. There is always something new to see, either new sculpture, or just the changing vegetation. It's too much to see in a day, which is one of the reasons that a single ticket is good for 7 days!...
