Went in the winter and the inside gardens were beautiful. Was neat to see all the water and ponds outside frozen over. I bet it would be beautiful in the spring time.

There are so many different areas. It is a nice place to take a stroll and there is usually art on display around the gardens.

Unfortunately, I came at the wrong time of the year. All I saw was snow and a stick coming up from the snow on each exhibit. They do have an indoor option but it’s a quick walk through. If the garden was not frozen, I...More
