“Beautiful Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2014

We went to the Maclay Gardens to kill time while on the way to the Tallahassee Antique Car Museum. The Gardens were beautiful with the azaleas just ending their bloom. The pathways and the flora are very pretty. There is an interesting movie in the ticket office that you can view before you walk in the gardens which should have been displayed on a larger screen.

“Very beautiful trees and layout in these gardens.”

Definately worth the visit. Beautiful Camelias and Azeleas in bloom during our visit. Wandering thru the many different areas was serene and inspiring.

“Large Greenspace”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Too pricey entrance fee. It is just a large Green Space that has been landscaped. Just take a walk in the woods,
