My wife, another couple, and myself visited Brookgreen Gardens this past March. It's a fascinating place; flowers and sculptures, all amazing. Our guide was very good. Kept a reasonable pace for all. What was also very nice is that a ticket was good for more than just a day.

We recently visited with our almost 2-year-old granddaughter. She loved seeing all the animals and really enjoyed the various playhouses. "Ribbit the Exhibit" (sculptures of frogs) was fun, too. We had a Groupon which made the visit very inexpensive. It's a great spot to spend a couple of hours with grandchildren or without!

I had read about these gardens in my AAA booklet and checked groupon for discount tickets and both sources led to a complete success and surprise visit. The gardens encompass more than 9,000 acres whic once were part of the many rice plantations in the 1700's and 1800's. Not only are the gardens beautifully manicured in their own right but... More

Lots to see at Brookgreen for most everyone. Early 20th century sculpture including a Diana by Saint-Gaudens--the Art Deco inspired works were my favorite. Lots of "rooms" or garden spaces to discover, many with fountains and some with poetry. We went in May and there were plenty of flowers in bloom. I also enjoyed walking along the dike along the...

I purchased a Groupon for Brookgreen, since we were going to be in the area on vacation. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the tickets are valid for 7 days -- bonus! It worked out well too because we arrived early afternoon and couldn't see all we wanted to, since the rain decided to shorten our visit. We... More

The Brookgreen Gardens are a cool break from the heat of the Grand Strands beaches. You can have a guided tour of the wonderful sculptures around the gardens and get some nice shade under the oak trees and cypress woods. I got a better understanding and appreciation of what is involved in American sculpture and I appreciated the history of... More

I cannot say enough about Brookgreen Gardens. We spend most of three days there this week and still not get to see everything. The park has exhibits, historical sites, sculpture gardens, a butterfly house, river tours, a WONDERFUL nature trail including two aviaries, including a swamp aviary. It is an adventure for old and young alike. The prices are also... More

Contrary to other postings here, this is a great place to spend a day or two. When you buy your tickets, they are good for six days, and you will need two days at least to see everything there is to offer. The zoo was very informative and entertaining and we just ran out of time the first day to... More

The Gardens is a beautiful, stress free place to visit. The history here is wonderful and you should really take the boat ride.

We visited Brookgreen Gardens on April 1st while we were staying in North Myrtle Beach. We had purchased a groupon deal for $19 for admission for two, which was a significant savings. So glad we spent the day at Brookgreen! We spent the first couple of hours wandering the gardens, the tulips were in bloom, the sculptures and statues and... More
