We were in MB to visit the wife's mother, who at 80, isn't as mobile as she once was. We wanted to enjoy being outside even in the 50 degree January weather, and hoped that Brookgreen would have enough to see for a half day. What an understatement! Even in the dead of winter with only Camilleas and some magnolias blooming, the place was a gorgeous oasis of culture and beauty off the over-commercialized Myrtle Beach strip. We had a great time touring the grounds, sculptures, and even the zoo. Great place for kids of all ages. They had plenty of adult scooter chairs that mom got to ride in as we pushed her around the grounds. She could get up and read the placards and see details but didn't have to get exhausted OR hold us back from seeing all the splendor that was there. While it would be nice if Brookgreen gave a discount in January, we got our monies worth in touring. They had a nice cafe open for lunch, and plenty of places to sit and view, or rest, or chat. The upside in January was no alligators out to scare older adults, but the signs alone elicited great conversation. Getting to understand a bit of the history of the Huntington's and the surrounding area was a byproduct from the touring. And the staff, so very nice and helpful - a really nice change from some tourist places we've been. I would go here again when in the area, especially to get a sense for foliage at other seasons of the year. Very special to be there nearly by ourselves, and there were staff waiting at the gate to close when we finally pulled out. All had to say, "Thank you Brookgreen!"
