Each season provides a new experience at the Arboretum, but around the holidays you have the chance to see the Holiday Garden Railway. It is magical and loved by "kids" of all ages!
It is beautiful. Great trains, great flowers, great little gardens, but VERY family friendly. Look around and enjoy all the small areas, trains, buildings, gift shop, but the rope tree is awesome -- I think I liked it better than my nephew!

The Garden Railway was... More
