Really enjoyed touring the gardens, we did the self guided garden only tour they have various guided tours and self-guided tour options. The gardens are nice and shaded and plenty of areas to explore even though we went in fall and none of the flowering plants were in bloom the garden was still beautiful and very green. Nice for a family day out or day date. The self guided garden only tour was 7.50 per adult.
We took our cousin to view the grounds and historical home that was dedicated to the the city. We took the 90 minute tour and throughly enjoyed it! The mansion was beautiful and you get to your all the rooms with the 90 minute tour. Each room is designed in a certain period in history. Our guide was wonderful and the grounds beautiful. They were decorating it for Christmas. A must see!
