Walking through the gardens at Christmas holiday season is lovely. Grab a hot chocolate or glass of wine and enjoy. The little gift shop has lots of cute items too.

Although there were few blooms, the water features, trees and shrubs were lovely. The orchid house is fantastic: well laid out, clever displays, enchanting waterfall. We were there during the day but the holiday light decorations are a sellout.

Excellent visit whether for planned or hosted events or just a casual stroll through the grounds, orchid pavilion or main building. Plenty of theme events and a busy schedule. Almost a great visit whether to hike the grounds, walk the gardens or just see what’s...More

It was between seasons, so very little floral, plus a huge area was under construction. Most plants and trees are labeled. Great place for photos.
