Brought my son and his sweetheart to lunch and one of my favorite Murrells Inlet locations, Brookgreen Gardens. First the food was fabulous and they thoroughly enjoyed their introduction to the gardens.

Beginning the trip at Brookgreen Gardens was almost a deal-breaker - the woman at the entrance booth had no idea how to redeem a gifted Groupon. She literally took all of my information from my driver's license to record it, I guess so I couldn't...More

Ticket gets you a week of garden animals and history. Highly recommend. Part of 9000 acres of 4 rice plantations, the Huntington family purchases it and made it a sanctuary for plants, animals, and art.

The Lego exhibit is not here this year, but we have "Ribbit the Exhibit" until July 9th. It's a charming exhibit of larger than life copper frog sculptures. Our guests have really been enjoying it!
Is the whole area wheelchair accessible including the boat ride?

Hi there, Yes most of the gardens are wheelchair accessible and the boat ride is also. Brookgreen has three wheel adult "strollers" that may be easier to push through some of the garden pathways.
