The foliage is amazing as well as the wildlife, and history. We walked due to the weather, but I would recommend walking or renting bikes from the gift shop.

Fantastic drive through this gorgeous park with unbelievably beautiful old trees. A sanctuary for snowy egrets who are nesting now. Must be at least 100 or more. A return trip to see the azaleas and wisteria in bloom is a must.

We absolutely loved our day out at Jungle Gardens and spent a number of hours here. You can walk or drive - we drove, but got out the car regularly and walked about. It is beautiful and peaceful with stunning scenery and wildlife.
