We were totally amazed to find Duke Gardens open again after several years of 'remodeling'. Over 2700 acres of land make up the farm which include various low key attractions. You can hike, bike or walk all or some of the 18 miles of paths that wind past lakes, streams, through meadows and woods. They even rent you bicycles at no cost. Oh yes, there is no admission fee. There is also a tram that makes a 30 minutes circuit with 3 stops. Get on or off at any stop. Unfortunately we didn't have a lot of time to spend but I am planning at least 2 trips back to share this extraordinary farm/garden with other friends. It's a fabulous day trip(s) for one or many. Loved it!!!!
