Fabulous place. 3 of us were injured or coming back from medical issues, so we could not explore to the extent we wanted. Nonetheless, the grounds, and the blown glass on display, were spectacular. Expensive, but this is one of those times one leaves at...More

There are all kinds of gardens, from formal beds to more informal plantings, and a huge conservatory with tropical specimens. I've been there twice, for exhibitions of Dale Chihuly glass, and it's really a tremendous setting for his work. It's huge and great for walking...More
