“Delightful Gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

I love exploring Lewis Ginter Botanical Gardens. No matter the season they have something of interest going on. The Butterfly exhibit they hosted was beyond amazing. No matter the age, there is something here for everyone. And the food in the restaurant area is delicious as well. Their light show at Christmas is a true treat for the entire family. Keep up the great work!

“Pure eye candy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I love their special attractions in the spring. The exhibitions are wonderful. The sale events feature plants you can't find just anyplace and they're usually very good prices for top quality seedlings and plants.

“Even in January, a Treat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We visited the gardens on January 21, 2013, and even though it was cold and most of the outdoor gardens weren't in bloom, the conservatory was such a treat. We are planning to go back in April so we can see the outdoor gardens in their splendor but had a fantastic time looking at/shooting the orchids, etc. Gorgeous place, truly.

“Go for the Christmas lights!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We went during Christmas when they have all the gardens illuminated. A fun evening, though often crowded, with the family or your sweetie. Might want to go on a weeknight or less than perfect weather night if you're going for Christmas.

“Everyone should go there once.”

It is a little pricey, but beautiful. Nice place for lunch or dinner. Many people have weddings there.
