Great garden on sprawling grounds! They have a winter light exhibit that you do on foot. So many things to do year round. Small entrance fee, but it's gated and bikes and pets are PROHIBITED, making it a nice place to stroll. Take a camera...More

We visited the botanical garden on a Thanksgiving weekend and loved it. It is a fatanstic location to take family Christmas pictures. Also, you can walk freely and stay for as long as you’d like.
