Take a beautiful and relaxing walk around their trails after having lunch in the restaurant... don't miss the gift shop with unique treasures or the photo gallery. Oh, and in the fall the Apple House is a MUST!

Based on glowing photos of his work, we were excited to experience their magic in person. Alas, we were completely underwhelmed. All four of us tried to find something special in the experience but tried in vain. Some work was surprisingly trivial, others had some inherent beauty, but none had the necessary ingredients to "light us up." Much of this... More

I had high hopes of taking my out of town guest to this place for a special Christmas treat. I purchased what I thought were tickets to the light show on Groupon. When we arrived, we found that they were only for general admission (which had ended at 4). The light show tickets were separate (and a whopping $22 per... More

I have visited the Arboretum several times in different seasons, the most recent being in November 2016. There is always something new to see! Even in the winter, the grounds are beautiful -- decorated for the holidays and with a special light show this year. In warm weather, there are plenty of outdoor activities for kids, as well as adults.... More

This was pretty cool, but I think it will even be better once we get more snow! The display goes until end of Winter 2017! The gift shop is huge and has a great selection of great gifts to buy! Most of the displays are outside and there are a couple inside!

The light exhibit is only here through end of December. There are fire pits and s'mores available for purchase for kids. Also full bar for drinks and snacks to buy.

We went in spring and then again in fall. Can't wait to go in winter to see the light gardens. We will become members next time. The most beautiful, relaxing experience! We also came away with a little more knowledge then we went in with! The bee exhibit they are working on is, will be amazing. Good for all of... More

Beautiful scenery and landscaping! Plenty of walking trails, gardens, and photo opportunities! After you're done with that, take the 3-mile drive to see even more beautiful landscapes.
