  • This is such a romantic place to go on a date, a good place to take photos, and very calming. As a young kid I was always so bored coming here but now that I am older I can appreciate the gardens and what its like to come with friends. I have considered getting a membership here. The staff have always been nice and there is a nice gift shop here as well. It is a little pricey for my budget :( but the gifts are a lot of artist and local products which I absolutely love. If I had more money I'd love to support the local arts and gifts. This is a great place to go to do something around town, and bring family and friends both in town and out of town to enjoy together. Even coming here alone would be a good option as well.
  • This is a wonderful place to spend a summer day! We spent 5 hours there with a 5 and 8 year old. There is truly something for everyone at this botanical garden. The model train garden was a huge hit and the gnome hunt kept the kids busy while we enjoyed the plants and nature. We aren't from the area but would definitely visit again when we're in the area!
