Lovely and tranquil. What made it more fun was the display of scarecrows along the paths. Great children's area for families. Easily walkable.

Drive through or walk through is a great time with family and tons of lights and displays. We did both last visit and enjoyed both visits. Reasonably priced and you can take your time going through the lights and other areas.
