Maybe you've heard of Brookgreen Gardens. Maybe someone you know has been there and raved about it, or maybe you saw it on television or online. Maybe you're wondering if you should go. Simple answer: yes, you should. I've been going to Brookgreen Gardens since I was a kid in elementary school, and it gets better every time I go.... More

Beautiful property. Meet outside of the welcome center for the free walking tour when you get there. The knowledgeable guides tell you about the history and facility. It gives you a good idea what to do after the hour short walking tour is over. A few different places to get a snack or meal at Brookgreen. They also have adult... More

The sculptures are interesting and beautiful. In mid-February there was not much in bloom. Would prefer to pay a bit less for admission on a daily basis rather than have a ticket good for a week.

A wonderful visit after not having been here in about 20 years. Many more things to do than the sculpture gardens. Though the gardens were not in bloom, the camellias were lovely. The Pavillion Restaurant was a pleasant surprise with a nice selection of well prepared and served lunch items. My Sweetie had never been before so we returned 3... More

If, like me, you haven't visited in many years, I recommend going. The gardens are beautiful and filled with art, more than I remember. There's now a SC wildlife zoo which is interesting and fun for kids. The have embraced their enslaved African heritage with exhibits. The gift shop caters to those who want quality art and jewelry. A really... More

We only had a few hours, but enjoyed the grounds and a nice lunch at the restaurant. There was a cherry tree (of some variety) blooming outside the giftshop that had 6 butterflies hovering over the top of it. In February. Amazing to watch. Our only wish, it was 3 weeks later so we would have seen more flowers in... More

We enjoyed our afternoon at Brookgreen Garden. I'm sure it will be much more spectacular in a month but it was still very enjoyable. Lovely sculptures, nice gardens for winter and a delicious lunch in their cafe.

For a single day visit the ticket prices are a little steep. They are good for 7 days but I couldn't see the need for more than 2 visits max. The gardens were very impressive especially considering that we went in February. The artwork was also beautiful. The zoo was pretty pathetic though. If you're going expecting to be impressed...

Heard about this event at Brookgreen. Just 3 weekends in December. We got there before dusk and enjoyed some concerts and gift shopping. At dark, the whole gardens: ponds, pools, statues, trees are lit with real candles and string lights. One of the coolest things I've seen. They had bagpipers playing Christmas carols, Christmas tree exhibits, minature train exhibits and... More

So much to see and do there. I still haven't done it all and I have annual passes. There's free lectures and a hidden city tour. A boat ride. My child is old enough for those now. There is a zoo, sculptures, fairy play houses, miles of oak tress, butterfly garden and more. It's world renown.
