Heard all about the seasonal Galaxy of Lights at the Botanical Garden so we did the driving tour. They also have nights for walking tours and dog walking tours.

It was very cold so did the driving tour. Bought the ticket online for $20 per car. At the gate they are $25 per car. You can have up to 10 people in the car for that price.

We went early around 5:15 so we could take our time and enjoy the numerous lights and displays along the course. They will recommend turning to 98.5 on the radio so you can pair the tour with Christmas music. Very nice treat.

Worth doing if ever here. I have been to the gardens during daylight and it was nice. The drive thru lights are a great deal with the kids.

We visited the garden for a picnic lunch and enjoyed the fall flowers and scare crow exibits. It was still fairly warm; so, it was nice to sit at the tables providd in the shade of a tree and enjoy a refreshing lunch.
