I really enjoyed my visit to Brookgreen. We used a Groupon so we got in for 2 for $15 which was nice. What I liked about it is that there was a little of everything. Sculptures/statues, beautiful gardens-live oaks, and wildlife. There's a storybook town with little wooden fairtale houses which would be cute for kids. When we walked the animal trails, the caretaker was feeding the birds of prey so we got to see them eat! We spent a few hours here and enjoyed every minute. We went into the butterfly exhibit for $3 each and I could do without that experience, but for $3 you might as well. The best thing about it is that your tickets are good for 6 days so you can go back if you want to spend more time there.

I can't see how anyone can give the Gardens anything less than five stars. What a wonderful experience, and we love the idea of purchasing a ticket that is good for seven days. What a deal! We stayed at the state park across the highway, and we were able to come and go during our stay, and didn't even get close to seeing everything we wanted to, so we will be back next year. Keep up the good work!

So unique to the region. If you are from the north this is a must see. Beautiful breathtaking plants and animals to see. A one of a kind, amazing! Visit in early April

Undoubtedly this would be a beautiful place if it were spring. We enjoyed the time but left feeling a little deflated because we only got half the experience. This would be a fantastic botanical garden experience. You can just tell how well done it would be in season. Out of season though you're only going to get the sculpture garden experience with the botanical garden left to your imagination. The "zoo" and aviary was neat but they'll only occupy about 45 minutes of your time. Part of the zoo was closed for rehabilitation. The butterfly museum was not open until April 1. In the end we were underwhelmed on a March visit and felt it was pretty bold that they require a full price payment to enter when clearly only half the experience is available off season.

In March, with the exception of the Butterfly House, we are fully operational and offer daily garden tours, interactive zoo programs, pontoon boat rides, overland excursions to historical sites, as well as a national touring art exhibit and a historical pictorial exhibition. Mid-March is a little early to see the gardens in full bloom but 1,700+ works of sculpture on display are beautiful all year.

Lots of beautiful statues and nature trails. We went in early spring so there was not a lot flowers but overall still very pretty. The absolute best part was the bird enclosure. You are able to get up close and personal with a variety of water and marsh birds. Great for pictures be sure to wear comfy shoes. Tickets are good for 7 days so you can freely return.

Having very positively experienced Longwood Gardens in PA, we were expecting a similar experience. Dissatisfaction began with a woefully inadequate handicap parking area. I have seen small garden centers with more spaces. Next came a parking security attendant who could not have cared less about directing us to a place other than overflow parking. Finally finding a place by the storybook land and "zoo", we took the open air shuttle to the main entrance. Hoping to rent a mobility scooter, I was directed, just as blithely as the parking attendant, to the pushed wheel chair area. No scooters to rent. Even after her Cheerios, my wife can't push me all around the sprawling gardens. If you carry around your own scooter on vacation and get there early enough for one of their few handicap spaces, you might just be able to enjoy yourself. In the mean time, I will hope that someone from management or customer relations will visit Longwood Gardens and see how a senior and handicap friendly botanical garden could be run. Sincerely, MK

We regret your disappointment when you visited the gardens recently but please know Brookgreen has more than the required number of handicapped parking spaces. Guests with mobility limitations are allowed to be dropped off at the Welcome Center while their companion parks the car. The adult and child strollers are available at no charge and there is a shuttle available at no charge that will take guests from the gardens to the history center, and the zoo.

Loved everthing. Gardens are peaceful and my 3 year grand daughter loved the zoo and Boat ride which was pleasant and informative. Lunched at "Plantation Restraunt". Fried green tomatoes, Grilled Chicken sandwich, Shrimp and grits and were all awesome.....HOWEVER.....they ran out of homemade deserts.

Friendly people! Amazing layout, beautiful statues, wonderful wildlife, great giftshop, and remarkable views of everything. There were fountains, trees I've never seen in person before, a plethora of vegetation, story boards in locations where the slaves used to work the land, stationary binoculars in selected locations, gosh...the trees alone were enough to steal the show. I've never seen such magnificent beauty on 9,000 acres of land. If you want to go and get away from it all, this is the place to go. Stunning!
