A friend who lives in the Raleigh area took us to visit this rose garden. It's a beautiful little gem of a garden and the roses were in full glory. We really enjoyed our visit even though it was cut short by rain.

The rose garden is beautiful during the Spring, Summer and Fall. Aside from that, one should take in a show or two at the Theatre itself. Don't miss the Christmas time show of Cinderella!!
