I visit this beautiful place as often as I can. I bring children to the carousel and the beautiful playground almost every week in the summer . I have a small group preschool and find so many beautiful spots to hike and explore with them on this property. The museums are very well done and there is a nice little... More

The landscaping is lovely, spotted with modern sculpture, and add a car museum and a children's play area. Something for everyone.

Heritage has a nice selection of beautifully restored classic cars. Some are there on loan, but most are their collection. Very impressive collection.

A first visit to Gardens Aglow for our grandchildren and they thoroughly enjoyed. The grounds are beautifully lit and the kids had fun doing the reindeer scavenger hunt. Likewise, they were mesmerized by the ice sculpting. The Carousel was a favorite with the girls while the trains in the exhibition hall attracted my grandson. Great ideas for holiday and dinner...

Visited with extended family to enjoy a night time stroll through the lights. Wonderful display and tour through the museum and train displays. The Santa was grand. Thanks so much for a great evening of family fun.

We went here at Christmas time to see the lights and the car show and were treated to a Celtic string band. A nice selection of cars not too many and the building is really neat. The holiday lights were less than we expected however. $18 each to get in seemed high

My wife and I took our two grandchildren to Heritage's "Gardens Aglow" holiday display. We were all excited to go and were all disappointed when we left. It just didn't measure up to our expectations, grandchildren included. Perhaps we expected too much. It was very crowded so if you decide to go, pre-purchase your tickets online ($18 for adults, $7... More
