    This is a fantastic sculpture garden. The folks at the marina said they if they didn't live in the area, this would be the thing they would come and see. It cost us $7.50 each way for the shuttle to the garden. There is a 10 minute film "Gray Oaks of Mystery" which describes the place.

    Brookgreen Gardens is open from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday - Sunday. Closed Mondays until March 8th, 2003.

    Admission is $12 for adults 19 and older, $10 for seniors 65 and older, $10 for students ages 13-18 and free for children 12 and younger. Your ticket is good for seven consecutive days so you can come back to do all the things you missed on your first visit

    I am very sorry to say that we did not visit this place which I have since discovered was a must see. A couple of locals told us the garden wouldn’t be very pretty in January so we skipped it. No matter what the season of the year, if we go again we will definitely visit Brookgreen Gardens, which the AAA a respected travel association in the USA rates as a gem. This garden, located on the site of an old rice and indigo plantation, contains many sculptures made by the 19th-century American Artist, Anna Hyatt Huntington. Here you will find moss laden oak trees, seasonal flowers, fountains, and more than 500 sculptures. These gardens, created by Anna and Archer Huntington contain more than 2,000 species of plants. Many of these bloom from early April through September. A wildlife park with an aviary, a cypress swamp, and nature trails will enhance your visit. Admission is $12 for adults age 19 and older, $10 for seniors age 65 and older, $10 for students ages 13-18, and free for children 12 and younger. Your ticket is good for seven consecutive days, so you can take in the entire park at your leisure over a period of days. I am kicking myself that we didn’t go see this, so don’t make the same mistake we did.
