The lights were very good, but slightly overpriced. It would have been nice to have choreographed music throughout. And maybe a cat light.

We drove through for the lights. Wasn’t expecting it to be $25. They also sell refreshments at the beginning and the Hot Chocolate was very rich. Although apprehensive about the price the lights were beautiful and the kids absolutely loved it.

If you want to see holiday lights, this is the place. The displays were awesome. I'd reccommend it for many age but older people should be aware it's a lot of walking.

Enjoyed strolling with family through the wonderful Christmas lights at Norfolk Botanical Garden. They have many beautiful lighted scenes throughout the park. Young and old alike will enjoy the light show!

Yes, there is still lots to see even though it's not peak season. Right now the roses are in full bloom, but there's always something wonderful in the gardens, no matter the season. Hope this helps.
