Visited for Night of a Thousand Candles. Great experience! The lights and sculptures were beautiful. Will definitely go back during the day to explore all the other things that Brookgreen Gardens has to offer.

Live in the area and have a yearly pass. We go to walk 12 months out of the year. There is an ever changing array of flowers/plants, and different exhibits throughout the year.
