“Back to Nature”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Nice little hidden gardens across from the SC Welcome Center on HWY 17 North of N. Myrtle Beach. Boardwalks over Salt Water Marshes and overlooks at the Intracoastal Waterway. Only had short time for visit, will come back next year for a longer visit.

“The only nature spot near Ocean Isle”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

Finally, we found a place near Ocean Isle that isn't developed with condos, multi-story beach houses or tourist shops and restaurants. Today, at low tide, I saw fiddler crabs mating, clams, mussels, oysters, lizards and a whole new landscape -- the salt marsh. Go there, do not even think twice. We're going tomorrow with our 80-year-old parents for a picnic. I would have foregone the beach and spent the entire time here if I had found it sooner.

“Beautiful place”
Reviewed May 24, 2013

Get in touch with our marshes and walk along the nature walks and boardwalks. See birds and other wildlife along the way. Head to the Intracoastal and fish or just sit and enjoy. You may spot a dolphin or two if you are lucky.

“Lovely marsh walk!”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This was the first year we had ever heard about the Vereen Gardens. We went and hiked around the boardwalk down to the water, took pictures of the wildlife and scenery. The breezes were very nice and it had been very hot at the beach. There are picnic tables and in one area a group of painters were painting the scenery. The dogs that were there were really enjoying the coolness and shaded areas. The angel at the family cemetery is beautiful!

“Free and beautiful.”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Lovely marsh gardens with many boardwalks from which to enjoy the scenery and wildlife. We walked in the sun as we observed the fiddler crabs in mating season (the tide was low and we could see them clearly), a white heron, hawks and grasses and flowers and trees. We climbed down to the beach and picked shells. Perfect for a peaceful afternoon of birdwatching or reading on benches facing Little River. There are also wooden swings for the kids and restrooms.
