Tips for Families

During mid-Spring to mid-Fall bring insect repelant. Plan on walking a lot so comfortable shoes. Stroller friendly and if you forget on, the park has free children and adult strollers.

I know, I know - you don't want to leave the beach. But if you can drag those tootsies out of the sand, Brookgreen Gardens is well worth your time.

Also - let me blow your mind here - this place is great for young kids. You're thinking, "Yeah, right, my kid is ALL about sculpture." But would your kid enjoy the birds of prey aviary? The butterfly garden? An alligator-spotting boat ride down the Waccamaw River? I was surprised and impressed.
