If you are in the Myrtle Beach/Murrells Inlet S.C. area spend a few hours at Brookgreen Gardens. You will enjoy the sculpture, gardens and native animal zoo. You can even garb a bite to eat.

This place was so beautiful I loved that when you bought a ticket it is good for several days afterwards so we did one half one day and the other half on a different day.

The entrance fee covers you for seven days. If we were going to be in the area longer we would have gone back. They have lots of beautiful gardens and art work scattered throughout the gardens. Plan on doing a lot of walking. They do have a shuttle that can move you around but if you want to see it... More

I visited last week this place is truly beautiful it's 15$ a piece and free for 7 days after you pay the 15$ fee. Its very big and there is no way to see the entire place in one visit. Some of the animal exhibits where closed but there was still a lot to see I would recommend brookgreen gardens.

On our 39th wedding anniversary, my choice to spend our morning was at Brookgreen Gardens on our 1st trip to Myrtle Beach. We were surprised at the size & magnitude of the gardens & wished we had allowed the complete day to tour the surroundings. We didn't make it to the zoo or extra tours. We enjoyed a free walking...

The Brookgreen Gardens is a must-see if you visit Myrtle Beach. for the price of one day, you can return free of charge for up to six days. Plan on spending at least 2-3 hours there and seeing the gardens, statues and zoo (small) area. It is beautiful, although for some reason this year there were less flowers and tulips... More

Please note: Your ticket is worth return trips for a week! The gardens and sculptures are amazing. If we had longer in Myrtle Beach we would have returned the next day.

We went this May and last May and both trips to the gardens were nice. The gardens were nice but not as many blooms as I expected; more sculptures than flowers. The zoo was fantastic and we had much more fun there. The butterfly garden was a really unique experience and was a great photo opportunity. I would recommend splitting... More
