I visited this place last night, I attend the "12 Christmas days at night". It was the most beautiful Christmas exhibition I have ever seen. If you like Christmas and nature, you must attend this exhibition. The place is gorgeous.

Very beautiful inside. Highly recommended during Fall. Try to book parking online so you pay $8 instead of $15 on the spot.

We did not have a chance to visit the 12 days of Christmas during the evenings when the lights illuminates, but, the day was just great. We spent 3 hours strolling through these exhibits and it was gorgeous. We also notices that there are lights strung on trees which would be gorgeous during the night. The garden is very well...

I'm not much of an arborist and I was basically dragged here kicking and screaming by my wife and family however it was really really beautiful and pretty cool. I had no regrets missing the football game (haha) and enjoying these gardens.
