Walking up to the Garden was nice. Got closer to find out the garden closed at 5:00 pm (disappointing), also the sign for admission price was below the hedge and only could be seen up close at the gate.

I went here just for the winter lights display that was supposed to be amazing. I have been to lots of different displays, and this one just didn't live up to any of the others. There were some nice decorations, but there were also many spots where lights had just been tossed on the ground, and it looked sloppy. Some... More

It is a big flower garden that is very pretty but I would never pay the price to go in and see it. There is a cute little gift shop on the grounds.

We have visited several times. An very nice stop, especially for the women folk, but all enjoyed the gardens. Well maintained and the fee was quite reasonable.

If visiting the Outer Banks it is a must see to go to the Elizabethan Gardens. Spring, summer, fall or winter it is a sight to see. Awesome gift shop also.

Beautiful place. This is the setting for many weddings and such. Just around the corner from the Lost Colony.

was there in the winter so not much in the way of flowers, but enjoyed the statutes, and trees. Got there about 1/2 hour before they closed so kind of rushed through it. They were just taking down their Christmas decorations. I would like to go back when flowers are in bloom.

We went for the first time a few years back for Mothers Day. It was absolutely gorgeous. I cant tell you how many pictures I took or how long we explored the gardens.

I've visited a number of parks and gardens that are done up in Christmas Lights for Dec. I can say I would put this location in my top 5 for sure. Its well laid out with a mix of various displays and lighted trees. The addition of music, marshmellow roasting, and even movies played on a large outdoor screen just... More

My fiance & I visited the Gardens for the Winter Lights event right after New Years. We enjoyed a lit-up stroll through the Gardens as our Christmas season came to a close. The walk was made even better by stumbling across a tent in the middle of the exhibits showing my favorite Christmas movie, Rudolph! Definitely a must-see for Christmas... More
