Nice garden

Wish would where there during full bloom, but gardens where very pretty. Will definitely go back to see in summer months.

The Winterlights event was a beautiful stroll through the gardens with new displays and lights showcasing the wonderful statues and plants. A Feast for the eyes. Bon Fire and marshmallows. Movie for the younger kids and kids at heart. A must see if in the area.

We enjoyed a wonderful venture to the gardens. While it was November, the gardens were still most beautiful. Can't wait to schedule a Spring outing.

My wife & I try to visit the Outer Banks of North Carolina twice a year--and we always plan a visit to The Elizabethan Gardens. There seems to always be plenty of things in bloom, regardless of the season. We were there in mid-October. We were astounded as to the color throughout. Most everything in our area (East TN) has...

Like walking in the woods with many mosquitoes. Save your MONEY. Everything dying or dead. Waste of time

Love the little gift shop and the staff was just delightful to chat with. There are many sections to the gardens which is about 10 acres with... More

The gift shop was lovely and the gardens seemed very beautiful ... from what we saw. The mosquitoes were a bit too active the morning we visited, so we didn't stay long. I'm sure it would be more fun in the cooler temps.

My husband and I went to the gardens the outside was beautiful but the inside once you pay the nine bucks was very run down. Over growth and such. Not enough help to weed out the weeds. Now I understand about the hurricane Matthew but this is over growth not storm doing. It was nice to walk around but it... More

A very impressive historic garden with some new scenes and statues. Enjoyed the wide variety of plant life, and the different sections of the gardens. As well as an attractive gift shop
