Spend the day touring the serene Brookgreen Gardens, part of a 6000-acre preserve coast that was once four rice plantations. More than 500 works of American sculptors are on display in the gardens, as well as wildlife and historical exhibits of South Carolina animals and artifacts. The Kitchen will prepare a gourmet picnic basket meal that you can take anywhere on the premises. Admission: USD12 for adults 19 and older; USD10 for seniors and students 12-18; children 12 and under free.
We only spent a few hours there because of time. My husband fought me to go, but he ended up really enjoying himself. Absolutely gorgeous! We didn't get to do the boat ride or any of the other extras, but just walking around the gardens was beautiful. I would go back.
Love Brookgreen Gardens. Been there 3x's over the 4x's I've visited Myrtle Beach area. It is so serene! Simply amazing beauty and time went into all the peaces displayed, as well as the landscaping!
A don't miss place! Enjoy!
I live about ten minutes away from Brookgreen and it's always been the best place to go.
I went there to camp during the summer when I was little which was a lot of fun, too. All the animals are wonderful, including wolves, deer, otters, alligators, water birds, prey birds, all kinds of birds, horses, chickens, and loads of banana spiders.
The sculptures are fantastic and you can wander around the gardens for days and still love them just as much. It's a great place to go, but me and my family just have to go there more often!
Brookgreen Gardens is the most amazing place!The variety of sculptures is wonderful. From Greek god and goddesses to any animal you can think of ( including an attack squirrel), to a childrens garden with all sorts of things to spark the imagination, it is great. The boat trip is well worth the small extra expense. The alligators alone are worth the price. The trails through the animal park and along the river are a birdwatchers paradise. I have spent many happy and peaceful hours there.
If you like art of any sort, Brookgreen Gardens is not to be missed. I first visited there 53 years ago and return often! It is magnificent: "a restful place for the soul". A glass of wine and some light treats at the restaurant help make the time at Brookgreen even more enjoyable. It is amazing the number of "art lovers" who've never heard of Brookgreen, one of my alltime favorite places to see outstanding sculpture, relax, and think. Oh! And be sure to visit the Hyatts' home at the state park across Hwy. 17 (perhaps on another day). An unusual and perplexing residence, well worth the admission cost.
brookgreen gardens was and still is my most favorite place in all of sc. When we plan our vacations to myrtle beach it has brookgreen gardens all over it. It is like heaven on earth. It is what i would personally think that heaven would look like and fill like the garens,sculptures,nature natural fragrance the beautiful trees and flowers, and animals. The friendly people that are there to help you, and every year it just keeps getting better. The music the childrens activities the food and most of all the amazing history of the beautiful gardens. Brookgreen gardens is the very reason when my children are out of school, this will be were i retire to. My husband and myself simply love this place of great peace. Just being in the gardens will give enter peace you will never want to leave. We love it !!! Cant wait to come back!!!
Acres of gardens, sculpture, animals, birds, so much beauty in one place. It takes more than one day to see everything, you get a 5 day pass with one 14.00 admission, a great value.
Huntington State Park is across the street and we brought a picnic lunch to enjoy over there afterwards. 5.00 admission to the park. Tour the Huntingtons winter home, a unique experience, and walk on the beautiful beach. Best day we spent in S.C.
