Make one wonder about life years ago. Thank You to Archer and Anna Huntington for the gift you gave to us.

This park is simply amazing! All kinds of plants abound throughout. The sculptures are products of imaginative creativity as well as precise skill and attention to detail. Visiting during the holiday season, gives a person the chance to see lights, performances, and special events. I hope to return to see the gardens in the springtime as well as in fall.

We used to go to Myrtle Beach all of the time before switching to a couple of quieter beaches in NC. But lately we've made one or two trips a year to Garden City because we have a friend who rents us her condo for a great rate there. We share conversion on our favorite restaurants there, and one day... More

Such a beautiful place. Admission is reasonable and worth every penny. The gardens were beautiful in the spring when we went. The Diana Pool and the other gardens areas were splendid. Very peaceful and you can go at whatever pace you like. Take the garden tour and the boat ride. The sculpture, history and gardens make it worth a stop... More

This is a great place to see if you're in the Myrtle Beach area. Admission is reasonably priced and with one payment you can enter for the next 7 days, so even if it rains (like it did on our trip) you can always come back. I loved the mix of art and culture at the gardens and is an... More

We loved Brookgreen Gardens so much we decided to become members now that we live in Myrtle Beach. The gardens are simply gorgeous. If you have young children they will enjoy the Storybook play area and the zoo. This is a place to enjoy the peace and quiet, not to mention the beautiful scenery.

We take all our guests to Brookgreen Gardens. This place has something for everyone, history, gardens, sculpture, walking trails, boat rides, the Zoo, the Butterfly House, and now the Enchanted Storybook Forest (which was a GREAT idea)!

Lovely gardens to wander around with lots of fountains and beautiful sculptures. Tickets cost $14 but are valid for 7 days so good value if you want to go more than once. There are extra charges for the Butterfly House and the Boat Ride. We paid $8 for the guided tour boat ride around the plantation which really wasn't worth... More

We needed more time here. Will go back! Enjoyed the boat ride and the guide was great and very knowledgable. Saw alligators here too! Statues and gardens are so beautiful. Came here with my husband and daughter and her friend both 21 and they enjoyed it too.
