These gardens are beautiful and I recommend the tour since you will see and learn things that you would likely not notice otherwise. Tour guide Robin shared interesting information, but focused on how her work was superior to her predecessor'. She would say that they...More

My husband and I enjoyed our visit to the gardens. We were most impressed with the shaving brush tree. I highly recommend.

It certainly is not a Botanical Garden. However, the Moorings has pretty plants and a gorgeous beach. I could imagine staying there.

This isn't a real botanical garden. It's the landscaping around a hotel. It's not visitor friendly, there's no signs and it's not even clear you can park there since the spots are all numbered, suggesting it's reserved.

This resort has hundreds of plants scattered throughout their grounds. You can do your own tour for $5 as a group. Or you can take the guided tour led by their guide for $5 apiece. The interesting and informative commentary makes option #2 the preferred...More
