“Impressive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Hadn't been here in years, and this was our second time visiting this month. What a gem! An absolute delight to stroll through the many gardens, groves and buildings. There is so much to see and learn here and all done in a very welcoming relaxing atmosphere. The grounds are pretty much entirely accessible for those with disabilities. The staff are engaging and knowledgeable. There is a very nice cafe and great gift shoppe. When we visited there were a number of weddings taking place throughout the grounds and that did make for some long lines in traffic.

“Beautiful, make some time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

This is well worth the visit. The grounds are HUGE, and the scenery is beautiful. The place can be quite busy, so if you want to avoid the crowds, plan on going nearer the off-season. You can spend as little time or as much time as you like, and believe me, you can be there all day. There are trails throughout the grounds, and various generally themed sections, including Japanese gardens, roses, etc.

“Worth the drive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

The Arboretum is a bit off the beaten track, but is worth the drive. There are extensive gardens that you can drive to and walk through. One of the largest arboretums in the US.

“Pretty place to take outdoor, woodsy pictures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

This is a great place to take portraits and pictures of landscaping. There are many, many types of different fora and trees. Great place to take changing of the colors shots during the fall. There are some nice gazebos, paths, places to meditate, relax. There is a large visitors building with a store and more. It was like $14 per person for an entry fee and I personally think that is just too much. It is good for a month, so you can return if you like.
