We enjoyed most of our day at Brookgreen Gardens. The grounds and sculptures were beautiful. The Lowcountry Zoo and new Butterfly garden were great fun for our six year old. The Pavilion restaurant, however, was not so great. Overpriced, and when I complained that my burger had a funky smell and taste to it - spoiled meat?- (my husband's did... More

Exceeded my expectations and some. Absolutely beautiful gardens and amazing sculptures. Just when you think you've seen them all you uncover another hidden gem. Trees gave welcome shade and the benches perfect to sit relax and take in the magic. Would definitely visit again

We had a great time on this visit. The grounds are huge and the sculptures are absolutely gorgeous. We had two kids with us and started off by stopping into the Visitor's Center where they gave them a booklet which had several quests in it. They were able to locate a lot of them and were rewarded with a few... More

this was our favorite attraction by far. the live oak allee was breathtaking; the trees have been allowed to naturally grow versus pruned. the sculptures were beautiful. the history learned from the lowcountry trail was well done.

Very nice place to relax and walk. Be prepared for walk for a couple hours. Mostly statues in park, but nice for some quite time.

Visited this garden which was lovely the sculptures were amazing. It was very relaxing to take a stroll through the garden but I would NEVER go on the boat ride again. I found the person that called himself giving us a history lesson about how the land was formed into this beautiful garden seemed racist towards Native Indians and African... More

I absolutely love Brookgreen Gardens. We have annual passes and use them relatively regularly. The gardens are beautiful all year long and are always changing. The sculptures are fascinating, I seem to notice a new (new to me, not to the gardens) one each time I go. This venue is great for families, solo travelers, couples, and just about anyone.... More

Brookgreen Gardens was quite beautiful, especially all the different types of trees, bushes and flowers. Numerous beautiful statues throughout. Butterfly house was interesting and got some great photos. Zoo is very small but enjoyed it, especially the Otters!

This is one of the most beautiful places to visit when in the Myrtle Beach area. The gardens change with the season, but the sculptures are always showcased. We have probably visited here at least 10 times and will surely go again.
