We went to Jewell Gardens primarily for the glass blowing, but ended up touring the gardens, and going to the restaurant (Posies) as well. We were traveling independently and had to call ahead to see if we could participate in the glass blowing tour (the tours are primarily set up for large groups from the cruise ships) . . .but Terry (at Jewell Gardens) was able to fit us in and it was a wonderful experience.
Dave demonstrated the glass blowing technique and had us participate in making our own ornament. It was fun & informative . . . and we have a gorgeous, handmade, glass ornament to take home.
The gardens are fabulous. We did a self-guided tour and I think we went through twice to make sure we didn't miss anything. They have vegetables and flowers, water features and a train layout. Throughout the garden are some amazing glass pieces. it is a beautiful setting and you can wander around for quite a while.
