Really worth the time and money. The gardens were just starting to bloom, the statues were lovely, the walking path was exceptional! I could certainly see why anyone who lives close enough would have a season pass! The zoo portion was better than expected, with a great walking trail. The tickets were valid for a full week and I only wish we could have gone back! They were having a Butterfly exhibit while we were there that was very informative and my 6.5 year old niece went crazy over.

“Great place for low price”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Beautiful gardens, thousands of acres over 4 plantations, tons of sculptures by an amazing woman artist that was a cornerstone to the community. If you have time to include the 'Treck' excurtion, it is worth it to learn about the great history of the area and lands. A boat ride is also offered to view places around the plantations not accessible otherwise. Best part of the admission into the gardens, is that your passes are good for 7 days...yes one week. You can go back as many times as you would like. There is a butterfly conservatory open during the spring/summer. A zoo is also included in your admission to see local area wildlife. Avairy is very natural for the birds to habitat there. The gardens are so large, they offer a free tram to drive you to different sections of the gardens & zoo. This is a great attraction for the price you pay!

“Wonderful way to spend a family day”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Our first visit to the Myrtle Beach area started off beautifully at Brookgreen Gardens. Of course kit was enhanced by the inclusion of our 17 month old Grandson and his Mommies. We highly recommend adding this to your list of activities and do browse for promo coupons. Don't miss the Otters.

If you've never been to Brookgreen, it is worth the drive south of Myrtle Beach on Hwy. 17 and worth the price. Plan at least an hour and a half. We return year after year and still love it. This week the tulips were glorious! Beds and beds of daffodils. Azaleas of every color. Camelias still blooming in several colors, also. You will be amazed at the sculptures!! There is a special section for children with places to hide and run. Fountains, gift shop, and plenty of places to sit and enjoy the scenery or rest. Only complaint is prices of items in gift shop are much too high. I know many are handmade but there should be more that are affordable to the average family.

“Aviary to die for”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We returned to Brookgreen Gardens again. It is an absolutely beautiful park. My favorite part this time was their aviary in the zoo. You walk into an aviary with many types of birds flying free under the enormous net tent. It is a wonderful experience. The birds had nests with babies. The babies were also in trees everywhere. There are many other animals, but this was my favorite. They also have a butterfly house with plants that really set off your photos of the butterflies. You really need more than one day here as there are also flowers, history and many art exhibits.
