Superb Christmas lights and music. Thoroughly enjoyable for all ages. Got there early, had dessert in the restaurant, shopped in a beautiful shop and saw the lights before any crowds.

The gardens are completely covered in lights. There are flowers, animals, Christmas decorations, an under the sea area, Candyland, Toyland and so much more. My favorite was the Japanese garden display. It was truly amazing!

A great way to spend celebrate the season. Perfect for a date night or a family outing. Easy to maneuver sidewalks with frequent spots to just sit and take in the little lights .

I’m not sure because I visited in March. They had tulips and hyacinths planted. And everything will be at least green and beautiful I’m sure.
