We stop by to see the Botanical Garden. Interest but small. Early spring flowers. The park is large and a nice drive around. Interesting bike and hiking paths. Slip lines Available.

While a touch off the beaten path, it's a peaceful place not far from Busch Gardens or Colonial Williamsburg. With a beautiful garden (probably even nicer in the spring), a number of trails (suitable for cyclists), and a little bit of history (the grounds on...More
