My wife and I were married in the rose garden in October 2008. Who knew that roses bloom twice each year and the fall bloom was at peak during our wedding. The folks at the garden were the best and helped to make our special day - very special. We visit whenever we come back to Norfolk and love the... More

The gardens Holiday light display is worth every cent! A great display of lights always well done a family favorite! We love the synchronized display. We normally go through them two or three times each year. They have a limited number of combo tickets the Virginia Beach lights. Two great light events for $25.

One would never imagine a more wonderful place to unwind and visit than the Botanical Garden. It's accessible from the highway all the way to the back roads. Always something to see. Amazing!!!

Million Bulb Walk is not worth it. Although the lights are beautiful, the wait can be over two hours long just to get into the parking lot. With only two kiosks to pay, I find this very inefficient. They should shuttle people I'm from parking nearby, stay open longer or something to improve the experience.

We weren't sure it would be worthwhile to go in November; would anything be in bloom? Well, the answer is yes, lots of stuff. The trees were in peak color and plenty of plants were in fine form. In the time we had, we walked about half the trails, enjoying beauty at every turn, on probably one of the best... More

I'm a member of the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. It's wonderful to be able to visit any day and stroll around. There are many paths to follow along. The butterfly house is lovely and informative. The rose garden is beautiful. There is also a couple of areas for the kids to have fun. There are some great activities and classes offered... More
