“Beautiful & Peaceful Place!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Norfolk Botanical Garden is a great place to visit whether you live here and just need to get back to nature or you want to take your visiting guests to a local favorite.
They have a little train that takes you all around the gardens and they explain about the plants and history of ...lots of fun. Bring your camera, lots of great photo ops in the spring and summer. They have a gift shop with some eclectic merchandise and it's always a great way to spend a few hours while in Norfolk, Va.

“Halloween or Christmas ...”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

The garden is an attraction, on it's own. But during the holidays, the park becomes even more. Great haunted Forest, in October. And great light show at x-mas

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed March 6, 2013

So much to see--we didn't have enough time to see it all. Nice boat ride through the gardens. You will want to bring your camera!

“Always visit the Botanical Garden, even at the holidays”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

The NBG is always a worthwhile trip. During the winter holiday season, they have a fantastic drive through display of lights.

“Holiday Smash”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

love the expansion this year. Highlight of the holiday season in Hampton Roads. A little pricey but it goes a long way in preserving one of Norfolk's beauties!
