The gardens are beautiful all year . The wildlife area is a great place for the children in the group. We enjoyed the boat tour as well as tour into the wooded area.It is a beautiful place full of history. The lights at night are beautiful this summer. I have always enjoyed Nights of A Thousand Candles. The staff and volunteers are wonderful. Their security department is very reliable and helpful.

I had a great time at the Brookgreen Gardens. The zoo is outstanding and all of the birds/animals are creatures you would find in our low country here in SC. I also took a tour of the plantations the gardens are situated on! Very informative and fun!

We had been here many years ago but, oh, how Brookgreen Gardens has changed – for the better! We purchased a Groupon which cut our admission cost almost in half and were delighted to learn that our ticket allowed us unlimited return visits for a week! Brookgreen is part arboretum, part sculpture gallery, part wildlife preserve and part living history museum; it is almost impossible to see everything in one day. By all means, take one of the docent-led tours (they’re free with admission) and, if you can visit on a Wednesday, attend a free lecture on the Gulla Geechee culture whose ancestors were brought to the plantations which comprise the present Gardens to work the rice fields. And if you can, plan your visit to include the Garden’s “Night of a Thousand Candles” you won't be sorry – words can’t describe it!

If you have been to myrtle Beach and missed Brookgreen..you have missed one of the best places along the east coast. An oasis on a hot summer day filled with wonderful surprises at every turn .georgeous sculpture and fantastic gardens.....
Surrounded and amid the live oaks ...lots to see and do....be sure to take the boat ride along the waccamaw as part of your visit.....you won’t ever be disappointed with a day or half day spend in Thai beautiful place....

We come from a family of artists, and when my uncle wanted to treat us all to this botanical garden, it was exactly that, a real treat. The place is quiet and beautiful. It really was a good place to go to step away from the ocean/beach scene for the part of a day. The gardens are fantastic, and the sculptures really are top quality, particularly the ones indoors.
