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.

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

We fell in love with this place the first time we visited. We now live in the area and purchased a year's membership. We discover new things every time we visit. It is a great value and should be on the list of things to see while at the Grand Strand.

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!

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.

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.

You can spend half of day here without feeling bored if you like art and nature. Also you should prepare a lot of walking. There were no insect, only clean air during winter time.

Way way way under rated! This place was the most amazing part of our week long trip to South Carolina!!! I loved the Live Oaks, the fountains and brickwork! There was a lot of statues and art work there as well that people would enjoy, but artwork tends to have a lot of nudity that I don't care for. We did not even get to the other half of the park that had the living critters! I think that if you wanted to see everything in this park you need at least 5 hours and if you want to appreciate everything you need days! Really this place to too big! But your pass gets you in for a week, so I recommend spending a good amount to time, at least a FULL day, they have food there to buy. Awesome, awesome, awesome! Best value and experience all trip!
